EYE - E-Incubator for Young Entrepreneurs

All innovation  starts from a question not an answer, and for that, one must be observant to apply

critical  thinking, constantly look around their world and create connections. Being reflective is where

deep learning takes place. It allows someone to look at their progress or success to ask what worked

and what didn’t, what could have been done differently and what could be built  upon for next time. And

when things don’t work out, being resilient and persistent will allow  a person to rebound from failure and

to turn good ideas into great ones. 

​Risk Taking is another hallmark of a mindset needed for success. Calculated risk is generally undertaken

after performing due  diligence and accounts for any possible negative consequences, or identifying areas

where the  chances of success could be higher than the chances of failure. Don’t forget that fear is a major

factor toward estimating risk. Although a person’s level of fear usually has nothing to do with an actual level

of risk faced, fear can indeed cause a person to  overestimate risk while lack of fear can cause a person to

underestimate risk. Balance emotion  with logic by examining the facts.

* Collaborative Inquiry-based experiential learning around topics that

leads to subject mastery - students actual perform better in testing because

they are understanding core concepts more thoroughly

*  Promotes the acquisition of 21st Century skills that employers seek in

their employees, including critical thinking, collaboration, communication

                                      and creativity - the 4Cs of future education

                                 and skills in demand by the 21st Century workforce 

            * These same skills are needed to become competent entrepreneurs,

       able to transform ideas and opportunities into products and services of value

     to others.

*  Adherence to standards set forth by UNESCO, OECD and World Federation

       of Associations for Teacher Education to rethink teaching and support the creation

       of innovative learning environments

The underlying beliefs that orient our behaviors and a way of thinking - a learned cognitive model that is acquired slowly and subtly, over a long  period of time as the result of experiences.

RWL in small-group learning environments transform teachers into facilitators

of knowledge, guiding their students through scaffolding while examining

real-world problems that form the basis for teaching by topics.  This becomes

learning and teaching re-imagined - future education today!  

                Preparing students to become FUTURE READY now 

                                through Real World Learning

Real world learning (RWL) supported by the EYE model offers a holistic and

flexible approach to learning in preparation for acquiring 21st Century

skills needed in the workforce, in entrepreneurship and for success

throughout the education continuum. RWL is often referred to as

Phenomenon or Inquiry-based Experietial Learning- and can

take place in a variety of learning environments and settings, such

as traditional classrooms, alternative learning settings, outdoor and

environmental training sites, etc. The pedagogy, methodologies and

strategies around phenomenon learning is revolutionizing education

systems throughout the world. This is the systemic change needed to

adopt an interdisciplinary approach to learning. 

RWL is a hands-on approach to students acquiring a growth mindset and exposed to

academic disciplines, or field of study, as a process for thinking, reflecting and acquiring knowledge. 

​​Phenomenon Learning + A Growth Mindset = Effective Pedagogy

                                 To Nurture Problem Solvers 

Real world learning requires not only exposure to academic disciplines or fields of study, it also

requires a growth mindset for the process for thinking and reflecting toward being able to acquire 

knowledge and skills.   

   Don't ask students what

they want to be when they 

grow up. Instead, ask them 

if they know of a problem

​that needs a solution.
