Finland's Schools Are Overhauling The Way They Do Things. Here's How

Finland's Schools Are Overhauling The Way They Do Things. Here's How | Education tech stories | Scoop.it
ducators use “phenomenon-based teaching" -- an approach that emphasizes broad interdisciplinary topics rather than single-subject classes. Instead of teaching about history or economics, for example, educators could give lessons on the European Union, blending aspects of history and economics, according to The Independent. Schools and localities will be given some degree of freedom over how they implement this method of teaching.

In a video posted to the website of the Finnish National Board of Education, Irmeli Halinen, the board's head of curriculum development, says that Finnish students will need to keep up with a changing world that is more technological and global and that faces challenges associated with sustainability.

NextGen LMS - What is learning at Nike?

NextGen LMS - What is learning at Nike? | Education tech stories | Scoop.it
Chris Rosso
Global Manager Learning Platforms, NikeU
Nike



 Perhaps the phrase "NextGen LMS" is a misnomer, at least in the eyes of Chris Rosso, global manager for learning platforms at Nike. "I almost want to rephrase it into: 'What is the next generation of learning technology?'" Rosso said. "What does it mean to us to manage learning in the future, as opposed to constraining ourselves to the concept of a learning management system?" Thinking in this out-of-the-box manner has been part of a paradigmatic shift in learning and development at Nike.

Check out our video interview above to learn what Rosso sees as the role of the future learning organization.

FEATURE: The Maker Movement: A Learning Revolution

The impulse to create is one of the most basic human drives. As far back as the Stone Age, we were using materials in our environment to fashion tools for solving the problems we encountered. And in the millions of years since then, we have never stopped creating. In fact, the rise of civilization is largely defined by the progress of technology of one kind or another.
