Christine McCartney, a Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching is researching how Finnish teachers utilize authentic, on-going formative assessments in their classrooms on a daily basis. She has created a powerful presentation looking at the 60 year history of the educational trajectories that the US and Finland have taken.

 

She states: "While homogeneity in Finland certainly plays a role in the different trajectories of educational reform in the United States and Finland, a closer look reveals that there might be more at play."

Dr. Harry Wong mentioned that Finland's educational model involves trusting their teachers. Think about it. When schools overmanage their teachers are they not taking their staff's focus away from teaching through the implementation of checklists and rigid process controls?

If the children in the classroom are learning then the teacher must be teaching, but this opens up a whole other can of worms: How do you measure the learning? What is learning - how does one define and measure it in a 21st century digital world?

Have a look at the Finnish method.
