Abstract

In trying to apply a ‘new’ approach in education, we used Löbler’s (2006) ten principles for entrepreneurship education. After two years of fine-tuning and improving the programme, we were interested in evaluating it and comparing it to other learning approaches mentioned in the literature and used in practice. The goal is twofold: Firstly, we wanted to find out whether the ‘constructionist’ learning environment does support autonomy in thinking and doing. Secondly, we were interested in figuring out if the students learned more and kept working harder while being more motivated on their projects compared to the other learning environments.
The results show that this kind of ‘constructionist’ coursework is superior with regard to many criteria and preferred by the students compared to the other learning approaches. The students also reported that they worked with much more enthusiasm and delight. Our analysis shows that the ten principles are working in practice and could be an advantage for students and teachers.
