What is the Digitrainer project about?

In the future our students will increasingly need good entrepreneurial skills in both their studies and their work lives. This is why with the in “Digitrainer for upper secondary high schools – project” students themselves develop goal-oriented activities, research new opportunities and expand on them and improve their creative, risk-taking and collaboration skills, etc. At the same time, the students develop as students and the project will help guide students. Finland is a country which is well-known for its expertise in educational development. The Digitrainer for Education was developed in cooperation with several Finnish universities and research groups.

Implementing the Digitrainer

Finnish upper secondary education is taking steps towards new digital solutions which empower entrepreneurial learning and behaviour. During 2015-2017 a mobile app will be developed that acts as a so-called Digitrainer. Digitrainer for Education is a personal trainer for students. With Digitrainer students evaluate their own activities, receive feedback on their activities and set themselves new goals, among other things. It is a concrete pedagogical and virtual tool for teachers and schools. Good ideas are shared in a cooperation network for the development of entrepreneurial skills in upper secondary high schools. Digitrainer empowers and challenges you to develop. Digitrainer brings the spirit of cooperation to education!
