In the meantime, we presented our research findings (September 2018) at the ECIE conference on Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Aveiro (Portugal). Learning in an entrepreneurial way confirms our suspicion: entrepreneurship is not only a learning goal but also a learning method! (Entrepreneurship not only a learning goal but also a learning tool). The observations showed that parts of the psychological explanation of entrepreneurship learning (the Action Regulation Theory) could also be validated. Youtube recordings confirmed elements of this theory in the behavior and actions of the participants in these game simulations. Indeed: highly gifted children, because an entrepreneurial way of learning fits their learning needs. The “market need” as we described in the publication.
