Overview

ALO Finland Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) introduces Innovative Pedagogy and EdTech in Finland. The emphasis is on the practical approach and solutions that can be repeated, benchmarked and further developed worldwide. Teachers can learn from the best practices in Finnish schools via videos, text and photos.

The digital teacher training course provides an insight into Finnish schools and offers an opportunity to visit primary schools in Finland online. 

Finnish Education 2.0 brings great academic results, whilst cultivating curiosity, creativity and future innovators. End result of an excellent education is academically strong, happy and healthy children, who become well informed and more sustainable global citizens than previous generations.

 

 

Finnish students score well in international tests such as Timms, Pirls and PISA. The differences between the weakest and strongest students are the smallest in the world, according to the recent survey by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). There are no school inspectors or standardized testing in Finland, apart from A-levels in high-school. And yet, the differences between schools are very small and a Finnish child is getting the same quality education in different schools.

 

 

Finnish teachers hold a Master's degree and are trained to continuously develop their profession. Teachers are the ones who put the new national curriculum in Finland (2016) into practice. Future focused research, curriculum implementation and its further development are part of their work. Teachers are the key in providing excellence and equity into education.
