Free Finnish School Visit Tasting
VisitEDUfinn is now giving everyone a chance to visit a Finnish classroom, free of charge! Our Free Finnish School Visit Tasting is for everyone who would like to get a “taste” for what happens in a Finnish classroom. You will have the opportunity to interact with a Finnish teacher and other participants and gain a better understanding of the basic principles of Finnish education.
During the Tasting, you will be able to observe real classroom action through Zoom and have a dialogue with the teacher. The visit lasts approximately one hour, and afterwards, the Zoom link will remain open for the participants to network, share, and discuss what questions arose during the short sampling of Finnish education.
Each visit has a different theme and different teachers, so you will learn something new during each Tasting Visit. However, as the name indicates, these visits are only for getting a small taste– no pedagogical expert is hosting the event or explaining how everything seen in the classroom is related to Finnish education. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you familiarize yourself with the basics of Finnish education beforehand. On our website, there are free material and links. In addition, we have Online Courses about Finnish education.
For those hungry for more after our tasting, we offer longer School Visits both online and onsite. Ultimately, if you feel you crave a full-course experience of Finnish education, you are welcome to join our Study Tours in Finland.
Wednesday, May 26th (LIVE Virtual) at 2 PM – 3 PM EEST (UTC/GMT+3)
Theme: Collaborative investigation in student groups at a chemistry class in a Finnish secondary school (age 14-15).
I really enjoyed attending the class, and I loved reading the questions from colleagues around the world!
I think what you are offering through these online classes is of great interest and value. It can certainly incite people to take part in on-the-spot job-shadowing experiments and go beyond the frontiers of their countries.
Thanks a million!
