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 | EFL Blogs | 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.

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, 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.

Joaquin J. Martínez's curator insight, April 27, 2013 8:12 AM

"¿Cómo deberían configurarse los contextos de aprendizajes para que se den las condiciones propicias para el compromiso y la implicación (engagement) de los alumnos en los aprendizajes promovidos por los docentes y la institución educativa? Creo posible reconocer por lo menos cuatro formas o estructuras contextuales que pueden dar respuesta a esta pregunta:

La ludificación: utilización de estructuras de juegos (gamification)La narratividad: explicación de contenidos mediante historias (storytelling)La experimentación: investigación dirigida a responder preguntas y resolver problemas (project based learning)La afectivización: atención, cuidado y retroalimentación continuada de los aprendizajes".

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) .

A mi modo de ver, una herramienta práctica, sencilla y vistosa para aprender por proyectos en el aula. Una plataforma multimedia que permite utilizar distintos tipos de formatos y crear grupos para el trabajo cooperativo, tanto en el grupo-aula como entre diversos centros.

Si por fin puedo desempeñar mi profesión este año, será una alternativa viable a la wiki o al blog de aula, que ofreceré a cada uno de mis grupos. No hay restricciones de edad.

Además, permite equilibrar el aprendizaje práctico en el aula con otras actividades no presenciales: blending o flipping.
