What Finnish schooling teaches us | Barrier Breakers

What Finnish schooling teaches us | Barrier Breakers | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Link­ing a couple of ‘riffs’ from pre­vi­ous posts — edu­ca­tion + tech­no­logy — this post pon­ders whether Finland’s remark­able edu­ca­tional achieve­ments over the last 40 years have any rela­tion­ship to the use of technology.

In a recent present­a­tion at the Houses of Par­lia­ment, Dr Pasi Sal­h­berg shared “Finnish Les­sons”, demon­strat­ing the suc­cess of an edu­ca­tion path dia­met­ric­ally dif­fer­ent from that being taken in the UK…goodness, they abol­ished the schools inspect­or­ate! And rather than tak­ing the road of com­pet­i­tion and stand­ard­ised test­ing, they’ve taken the road of par­ity. Now Fin­land tops the inter­na­tional league tables.

And what part has tech­no­logy played in this?

One of the 5 key Finnish Les­sons was that we need “greater emphasis on ped­agogy and less on technology.”

In this series, a collaboration between the exhibition curators, MoMA’s Cafe 2, and the Consulate General of Finland, adults are invited to participate in a meal inspired by the koululounas (school lunches) of Finland, a country consistently recognized for excelling in all aspects of public education. According to its National Board of Education, Finland was the first country in the world to serve free, regulated school meals to children on a large scale, starting in 1948. Today, balanced meals of local and inexpensive ingredients provide both energy and educational value.
