Creating the Entrepreneurial Mindset in 21st Century Schools – The Partnership for 21st Century Skills
Great piece about creating entrepreneur-oriented educational paradigm, NOT simply inserting an “entrepreneurship course” into school curriculum.
Thx @YongZhaoUO for highlighting the value of @MViDiploma: Not a course, a new model. http://t.co/d2rxdQmCCg cc @jbrettjacobsen @boadams1

Entrepreneurship is fundamentally about the desire to solve problems creatively. The foundation of entrepreneurship—creativity, curiosity, imagination, risk-taking, and collaboration—is, just like the ideas of engineering, “in our bones and part of our human nature and experience.”
To cultivate the entrepreneurial mindset cannot be achieved by simply adding another course to teach entrepreneurship to the existing paradigm. We now need a new education paradigm—entrepreneur-oriented education, instead of the employee-oriented education. Such a paradigm is really about the human dimensions.
It is about respecting children as human beings and about supporting, not suppressing, their passion, curiosity, and talent.
