Vuosia tahkottu ammatillisen koulutuksen tutkintorakenteen uudistus on valmistunut. Uudistuksen myötä ammattikouluissa aletaan korostaa osaamista: opintosuorituksia ei enää mitata opintoviikoissa, vaan osaamispisteissä. Myös oppiaineen käsite väistyy osaamiskokonaisuuksien tieltä. Uutta opetussuunnitelmaa päästään kokeilemaan käytännössä ensi viikolla, kun ammattikoulut aukaisevat ovensa.
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.

Kokeilin amerikkalaista MangaHigh-pelisivustoa, jonne on koottu useita mobiilipelin tyyppisiä yksinkertaisia mutta värikkäitä matematiikan oppimispelejä 7-16-vuotiaille matematiikan oppijoille. Pelejä on moneen lähtöön lukukäsitteen opettamisesta trigonometriaan, järjestämiseen, geometriseen hahmottamiseen, yhtälöihin, kertolaskuihin, negatiivisiin lukuihin ja koordinaatteihin.
Peruskoulun ja työelämän ajattelumallit eivät aina kohtaa. Siinä missä perusopetuksessa yhdenmukaistetaan nuoria, työelämässä työntekijöiden halutaan olevan enemmän pelle peloton -tyyppisiä luovasti ajattelevia.
This is a must for those teachers use the great benefits that the AppleTV can bring to the classroom.
Do you see this intro screen when the Apple TV turns on?
Those movies on the top? While a lot of these are the most popular movies playing though it is, they may not be the most appropriate for our students. This happened just today as I was teaching in another classroom, and it was a small distraction during my lesson. Kids were excited to see their favorite movie, in this instance, Big Hero 6. They cheered and became excited. Wild this case was harmless, I can only imagine other cases where movies that are rated PG-13 or higher can cause some concern for teachers of younger students. These can even be a distraction for high schoolers, who will likely veer off topic if they see a movie that they like or dislike.
