In 2020, ErasmusX launched the minor “Future Learning with Technology: Prototyping and Design”. Our goal was fairly simple, we wanted to offer students a different educational experience while immersing them in the world of EdTech (educational technology). Students were in charge of their personal learning journey and were challenged to find clever technological solutions for problems they themselves identified in their current educational programs.
Students were asked to explore the world of EdTech. They worked in multidisciplinary teams to identify core educational problems and accordingly create prototypes that could solve these problems. Alongside that, students had to set personal learning goals, periodically reflect on their progress and document it all in an e-portfolio. At the end of the minor, all student teams had to pitch their prototype to an expert panel and deliver a personal e-portfolio to showcase their personal learning journey.
In 2021, we did it again (of course while implementing all the learnings from the previous year). Below you can find the number of students we had during our minor, distributed by their faculties.
