The webinar format: introductory

Thursday 22nd of April 2020 at 16:00-17:00 pm EEST (UTC/GMT+3)

COVID-19 has brought challenges but also opportunities for teachers and schools to re-organize their functions and practices in a more efficient and modern way. What benefits these practices have brought to students’ learning, teachers’ working, and schools’ work as organizations? And what challenges the remote teaching has created for students’ and teachers’ well-being, and how the problems of well-being have been solved? These topics will be discussed by a few experienced Finnish teachers. The discussion will be facilitated by Suvi K. Westling, who is a researcher and trainer of educational psychology.

Martes 5 de mayo de 2020 a las 17 horas – 5 PM (UTC/GMT) – 60 min

La pandemia ha cerrado todas las escuelas en Finlandia, por el momento al menos hasta el 13 de mayo de 2020, pero el aprendizaje de los alumnos – y de hecho toda la escuela – sigue. Maestros, profesores y el personal que se dedica al bienestar de los alumnos (psicólogos, sociólogos, enfermeras…) han puesto en práctica nuevas maneras de trabajar, con la ayuda de los municipios y del estado, y han buscado – y están buscando – nuevas maneras de trabajar con los alumnos. En este webinario, vamos a averiguar soluciones prácticas que se han llevado a cabo en esta situación excepcional. El webinario se realiza en español, por parte de Pekka Tukonen, director de una escuela finesa.

Los temas para tratar durante el webinario:

  • ¿Cómo se han organizado la enseñanza a distancia? ¿Qué herramientas se utilizan?
  • ¿Qué pros y contras se han encontrado en esta situación peculiar?
  • Cómo se apoyan a los alumnos de educación especial / que tienen problemas de aprendizaje o de atención, ya durante el aprendizaje “normal”?

Por favor, inscríbete antes del 3 de mayo al webinario. Este webinario es gratuíto.

The webinar format: introductory

Thursday 3rd of October 2019 at 6:30 am UTC/GMT

From modern research, we know a lot about the students’ cognitive functioning and the limits of knowledge processing in traditional academic settings. As the world is changing rapidly, the wide and complex phenomena/problems of the current world require thinking, which reaches beyond ‘borders’ of school subjects and disciplines. In this webinar, you will hear the basic idea behind the concept of phenomenon-based learning and some examples, how to apply it. 

Please sign up 48 hours prior to webinar. This webinar is free of charge.
