Why Finland’s Unorthodox Education System Is The Best In The World...But how do they do it?

Blogs and Twitter Beat Formal Academic Learning

Blogs and Twitter Beat Formal Academic Learning | Inside Education | Scoop.it

in the past two years, a whole new world of professional development and PLN’s has been unveiled, a world that is less traditional, formal, linear, or hierarchical; a world that doesn’t have such rigid rules about who gets to publish and who only gets to read; a world where ideas bounce back and forth in all continents in seconds through social networks and specialized websites. And I have a confession to make: though I did learn a lot in my formal academic endeavors, I believe I am learning much more now and from a greater variety of people. How did this all

Wow!  "The teacher and student jointly select the subject matter that is to be worked with in the classroom. They are equal in this process, just as they are in their subsequent efforts to process the subject matter and produce common knowledge within the field."


Great idea.

The flipped academic: turning higher education on its head

The flipped academic: turning higher education on its head | Inside Education | Scoop.it
Education models are turning inside out. First came the concept of the 'flipped classroom' in schools: pupils completing course material ahead of lessons to free up time with their teachers and apply the knowledge they have just learned. Now a related philosophy is developing in higher education. Can we also flip academics – or even academia itself?

Alex Bruton, associate professor in innovation and entrepreneurship at Mount Royal University in Canada, thinks so. The 'flipped academic', as he sees it, is an academic who informs first and publishes later, seeking usefulness as well as truth in their research and striving to publish only after having had an impact on students and society.

Mike Truong's curator insight, December 11, 2012 12:06 PM

I love the idea of the flipped academic, "publish only after having had an impact on students and society."  Our current model allows so much stuff to be published that doesn't really have any impact on students or society.  It reminds me of the idea of action research.

UmeaMan's comment, December 11, 2012 8:15 PM
I love the flipped model and I try to introduce it into Chinese K-12 settings, to help headteachers and teachers to implement it.But I found that there are a lot obstacles: such as change courages of teachers, teachers'competencies to create online videos, students' self-regulation etc. Do you have any suggestions and advices? Thanx.
