Phenomenal Learning from Finland

Finland's PISA results have raised world-wide interest in Finnish schools and teacher education. What will happen next? This book presents Finland's path to 21st century competences and the exciting concept of phenomenon-based learning.

The way to globalization, digitalization and automation is paved with many challenges shared by countries around the globe. The author states that the Finns will have to raise their valuable school system to a new level and standard. This calls for intensive reforms, both in teacher education and at school. In addition to the broad-based competences central to the new Finnish curricula, the book discusses the latest developments in education, innovative pedagogical methods, and new learning environments.

In order to understand where we are going, it is also necessary to see where we are coming from. The story of how Finns made the leap from poverty to a flourishing and equal society may inspire those in countries still on their way to a better life. This book reveals some of the country's secrets for those interested.

The author, professor Kirsti Lonka, PhD, is Professor of Educational Psychology at University of Helsinki, Finland. She has worked in many countries on several continents to bring the latest innovations and ideas to Finnish education. She is an international researcher and keynote speaker who has inspired thousands of teachers globally.

The book will be available in June 2018 in printed and e-book format.
