We talk to Jarkko Mylläri, Project Researcher, Swamp Soccer aficionado and fellow Google Certified Teacher from the University of Helsinki about how education policies put in place in the 70’s are yielding dividends today and his research into what Finland’s classrooms of the future will look like.
Finland’s students and classrooms are looking to connect to other students around the world. Link coming soon.
Skeptics about Finland’s approach to public education point to the homogeneity of the population (something Jarkko, too, mentions) as somehow invalidating the value of the Finnish approach – however, comparing their approach to neighboring Norway suggests there is more to the mix.
