Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | change is possible | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

This article shares how Finland is changing how they teach children and adults. This is similar to the comments I recently shared from Stanford's president. Thoughts?

María Florencia Perrone's curator insight, April 8, 2015 4:00 PM

The world around us is not labelled or divided in categories, then why is academic content? Can we not relate topics and elaborate meaning on the basis of relationships and intertwined data? 

Helen Teague's curator insight, April 13, 2015 9:11 PM

I wonder if this would work in the U.S.? Also, in Finland, students do not take standardized tests until the end of high school (Zhao, 2012, p. 111), so thankfully, perhaps the drill and kill process is diminished.

How Social Media Changed the Way We Consume News [Infographic]

How Social Media Changed the Way We Consume News [Infographic] | change is possible | Scoop.it

Social media is fast becoming one of the main destinations for news online. An infographic created by the University of Florida Online, explores the evolution of the news industry and the way news is consumed.

In 2012 there were 2.4 billion Internet users, and 1.4 billion of them were using social media. Nearly 50 percent of Internet users surveyed said they regularly or occasionally heard about a breaking story on social media before it broke on mainstream sources. In fact, since 2009, social media buzz has resulted in a 57 percent increase in traffic to news sites.

Now online dominates the news market, with 64.5 percent of people going to official sites like The New York Times to get their news. Surprisingly, nearly 30 percent of people still get their news from the papers, but social media is hot on print’s heels with 27.7 percent of consumers.

Social Media is closing in on print media as consumers choice for news. Online news has exploded, and is probably one of the reasons why Facebook continues to push NEWS in their news feed.

We as consumers seem to be hungry for news as it happens, and Social Media plays a big role in the delivery of content.

Over the last several years, the popularity of social media has reached incredible heights—and 2013 was the best year thus far., and many of the mind boggling social media statistics from the past year prove this.

In 2013, 95 percent of Facebook users logged into their accounts daily. One of Facebook’s main competitors, Twitter, reached 231.7 million active users. Google+ wants to get on their levels, and it does add 25,000 new users every day.
