What this means is that students will now have the opportunity to choose subjects from their real surroundings such as Technology, Media or the EU. Of course, some subject will be included, but only those who contribute to excelling the topic.
This new way of learning will include both online sessions and the traditional face-to-face with an emphasis on the beneficial used of new technology through the process of eLearing.
They are also going to change the teaching style.
Students will no longer sit behind their desk and follow their teacher’s instructions. The whole approach is going to be changed to a holistic level, the most natural way possible.
Also, emphasis will be put on teamwork which will include learning in a collaborative setting and all information will be formed in a social context replacing the current internal element of the individual.
All teachers are already going through intense training because these reforms are going to require a lot of cooperation between teachers of different subjects.
I` m sure that this style of teaching will also be very rewarding for the teachers and those who have already implemented it say that they cannot go back to traditional teaching.
By 2020all schools in Finland should completely implement the PhenoBL.
