Finnish Innovations and Technologies in Schools. A Guide towards New Ecosystems of Learning -kirjan julkaisutilaisuus 28.10.2014

Finnish Innovations and Technologies in Schools. A Guide towards New
Ecosystems of Learning -kirjan julkaisutilaisuus
Tiistai 28.10.2014 klo 16.30
Seminaarihuone 302, Siltavuorenpenger 3A, Helsingin yliopisto

Tilaisuus on ilmainen, mutta pyydämme ilmoittautumaan:
https://elomake.helsinki.fi/lomakkeet/54699/lomake.html

Tervetuloa Finnish Innovations and Technologies in Schools. A Guide
towards New Ecosystems of Learning -kirjan julkaisutilaisuuteen
tiistaina 28.10.2014 Helsingin yliopistolle.

Teos tarjoaa erilaisia näkökulmia siitä, miten suomalainen
koulutusjärjestelmä kehittää oppilaiden 2000-luvun taitoja.
Suomalaisessa järjestelmässä pyritään kestävään koulutukseen yhteyksiä
luomalla ja olemalla avoimia muutoksille. Koulutusjärjestelmän
vertauskuvana käytetäänkin ekosysteemiä.

Kirjassa esitellään opetussuunnitelman kehitystyötä ja kuinka joustava
opetussuunnitelma voi menestyä ilman oppilasarvioinnin tuottamia
paineita. Teoksessa tutustutaan tutkijoiden, opettajien, rehtoreiden,
julkisen sektorin ja liike-elämän edustajien yhteistyöhön ja sen
tuottamaan tietoon. Kirjoittajat erittelevät tapoja, joilla
teknologiaa on integroitu koulun arjessa rikkoen formaalin ja
informaalin oppimisen rajoja. Artikkeleissa pohditaan 2000-luvun
taitoja ja vaatimuksia tiedonmuodostuksessa, yhteistyössä,
verkostoitumisessa ja digitaalisessa lukutaidossa. Kirjassa nähdään
kuinka digitaalisen tarinankerronnan ja pelien avulla voidaan yhdistää
iloa, motivaatiota ja oppimista. Teoksen vahva sanoma on, että
yhteistyön ja verkostoitumisen avulla voidaan luoda koulutuksen
ekosysteemi, joka tukee erilaisia oppijoita.

Book Launch: Finnish Innovations and Technologies in Schools. A Guide
towards New Ecosystems of Learning

Tuesday 28 October 2014 at 16.30
Room 302, Siltavuorenpenger 3A, University of Helsinki

The event is free of charge, but please register:
https://elomake.helsinki.fi/lomakkeet/54699/lomake.html

Welcome to the book launch of Finnish Innovations and Technologies in
Schools. A Guide towards New Ecosystems of Learning at University of
Helsinki

The book combines several perspectives on the steps the Finnish
educational system has taken to provide students with the skills and
competences needed for living in today’s society and in the future.
The ecosystem is used as a metaphor for the educational system. The
Finnish system aims to achieve sustainable education by ensuring that
the system is simultaneously interconnected and open to transformations.

The book describes how a flexible curriculum system is succeeding
without the pressures of high-stake testing. It also illustrates how
the ongoing curriculum reform of the basic education is working. The
book brings together knowledge gained in schools through the
cooperation of researchers, teachers, school principals, the public
sector, and private companies. The book presents case studies of
technology integration aimed at crossing boundaries in formal and
informal learning settings, locally and globally. The contributors
address 21st-century needs and requirements through learner-driven
knowledge creation, collaboration, networking, and digital literacies.
It opens new scenarios of how to apply digital storytelling and games
connecting fun, motivation, and learning. The strong message is that,
through collaboration and networking, we can create an educational
ecosystem that supports different learners.
