At the 9th Intercounty Fair of Training Firms, held on April 5th, 2016, in Bjelovar in Croatia, Gospodarska
škola Varaždin and Evolva introduced economic school teachers with the educational software Trainee ERP
which helps students to prepare better for the business world.
Trainee ERP is an information and educational system for the program Training firm that is funded by the European Social Fund as part of the project The interdisciplinary curriculum of secondary vocational schools. The development of the system has achieved the goal of the project, which is to use information and communication technologies to facilitate the mastering of theoretical knowledge and entrepreneurial skills. After the results of the entire project were presented, the head of Evolva development team Branislav Stambolija has showed what does it look like to use this web-based system at the program Training firm.
Trainee ERP enables learning-by-doing in a way that students perform concrete tasks in a simulated business and record their activities in the digital student diary, while teachers prepare classes easier and coordinate tasks that students perform during the whole school year, along with the continuous monitoring of students work and more precise knowledge testing.
Intercounty Fair of Training Firms was an opportunity for teachers to see how Trainee ERP helps in teaching. The fair was organized by Commercial and Trade School and Economics and Administration School from Bjelovar, and was attended by 32 training firms. Students thus gained the experience of business cooperation and they also presented offers from companies they lead under the supervision of teachers within the program Training firm. Trainee ERP should help them in the future, as a modern teaching method, to use the business software to prepare themselves better for the real business.
Teachers from economic schools, who didn't attend this presentation of the Trainee ERP will be able to see it at the next Training Firm Fair in Varaždin on April 25, 2016. The presentation of the entire project's results will be held at the final conference in Varaždin in early May this year. News about upcoming events can be found at the official website of the project.
