On the occasion of the first Fall Congress on Conscious Entrepreneurship, we met Sophie Nadeau-Tremblay, elementary school teacher, resource teacher for École en network and educational advisor for Idée Éducation Entrepreneuriale. She shares with us her passion for children's literature and conscious entrepreneurship.

Sophie quickly understood that project-based pedagogy had a positive impact on student motivation. In this interview, she emphasizes that conscious entrepreneurship allows her to give more depth and sustainability to her pedagogy. Passionate about literacy, she gives her students projects that are meaningful and that meet a need related to reading or writing.

Educational project or conscious entrepreneurship project?

Sophie relies on metacognition and awareness related to the realization of a project to make the student think about his actions and to make him responsible for his learning and his successes. It is by using a vocabulary specific to conscious entrepreneurship that we can integrate culture and skills so that the child gets to know himself better.

If we wait to be ready, that never happens!

Teachers like to be organized, but in entrepreneurship you shouldn't plan too much, because the project matches the ideas and interests of the students. Sophie says, however, that you have to keep the learning objectives in mind while remaining flexible enough to modify its content when an opportunity arises.

To start, it is not a question of embarking on a large-scale project, but rather of asking the question what am I already doing that could be improved? Sophie suggests changing her posture and transferring the responsibilities usually carried by the teacher to the students by making them play different roles.

"Entrepreneurship is not just making projects, it is engaging students in real situations, where they have the power of action and decision" - Sophie Nadeau-Tremblay

We invite you to listen to this interview to discover the success factors and the repercussions of conscious entrepreneurship projects.

We also invite you to participate in the second edition of the Fall Congress to be held on October 24 and 25 at the Lévis Convention Center.
