The main goal of the SEEDS project was to develop pedagogical methods for preschool education, to support early learning of relevant skills like an entrepreneurial mind-set, digital media use and to ensure social inclusion of all children in this learning.
SEEDS aims to equip children from an early age, with the seeds for the development of an entrepreneurial compass in interplay with digital media. This compass starts from the individual as a citizen and builds on their particular skills and competences to enhance the four points of the compass; critical reflection, collaboration, co-creation and agency.
SEEDS has developed a preschool pedagogy that combines the Change-maker model (Robinson, 2020) and the methodology of an Experimenting Community (Thestrup, 2020) into an innovative pedagogy, which can be applied in almost any educational activity from preschool to higher education.
All the SEEDS resource materials were developed based on activities across local experimenting communities in the 4 partner countries; Germany, Italy, Cyprus and Denmark.
