Digital creativity in the classroom
Let's dive into the world of digital creativity! Share your ideas, experiences and examples of best practice on how to engage students with digital creativity in the classroom in this Padlet.
The 5 euros challenge
This learning activity is aimed at developing entrepreneurial competences in your students, such as creativity, working in teams, communication, management of resources, etc. Ask your students to come up with creative ideas on how to generate more money out of an initial investment of 5 euros. All they need is an idea, which they need to try in reality for two hours and see how much money they can get, and 5 euros.
- Divide your students in groups of four people and give them several days to think about an activity and a plan to invest their 5 EUR.
- Choose a date by which all teams will carry out their activities within 2 hours. When the two hours have passed, they have to close the activity. The day after, they will come back to class with all the money they have collected and share their experience with their classmates in a presentation of three minutes. They can reflect on their plan and their results.
- After the presentation, ask your students to share their experience on this Padlet, so they can see what other people in other schools are doing.
The money collected during the activity can be donated to local initiatives of their choice.
