It is almost a month ago eLearningworld reported on Finland’s innovative and learning-friendly educational reform, now other media is beginning to catch up. Teaching by subject will be replaced by teaching by topic during the next year in Finland. “This is going to be a big change in education in Finland that we’re just beginning,” said Liisa Pohjolainen to the Independent, manager of youth and adult education in Helsinki. The basic idea around the reform is that the society in general and the working life especially has transformed dramatically during the past decades and education must follow its path. Source: the Independent
