The Best School in the World, Finnish School exhibition at CerModern, Ankara - 8 views

  •  
    My students from last semester shared with me recently. This exhibition at CerModen gives some demonstrations and information about Finnish schools and the learning and teaching environments created within those schools. Finnish educational system has been quite popular around the world because of the students' success in international PISA scores. Please consider visiting this exhibit. Perhaps we can initiate a conversation here and I think Matti's insights would be valuable.

    I think visiting the exhibition will be useful to understand Finnish perspective on education and how and why they are successful. Also there is a seminar about this topic, I wish I could attend the seminar but I have to attend my serious games and simulation course.
  •  
    I think that the most important fact in the backround of the succes in Pisa is the equality on education in Finland. Together with expertice of Finnish teachers and effective teacher education they have grounded the PISA succes. If you have interest to familiarize you to the Finnish core curriculum, you 'll find the english version of the document here: http://www.oph.fi/english/sources_of_information/core_curricula_and_qualification_requirements/basic_education We have started the process to renew our curricula: some information about this: http://www.oph.fi/english/102/0/ops2016_renewal_of_the_core_curriculum_for_pre-primary_and_basic_education

    I think Finnish education system, which ranks in top 5 in PISA 2009, deserves to be examined in more detail. In that sense, Matti, would you mind if I asked you a couple of questions about Finish Educational System? :) As far as I understood, the core curriculum in Finland is determined by the government (please correct if I am wrong). Are there any institutions or schools that design their own curricula, or do all educational institutions have to follow the core curriculum developed by the government? In addition, who are responsible for the books that are used in schools? Are they also provided by the government or does the government buy them from private companies? And lastly, what about school? How school is used in Finnish schools? Who provides resources? Do school go through any educational process for school integration in classrooms? If it is more convenient to answer, I would be glad if you provided me links or resources that I can find answers, thank you in advance, PISA 2009 Scores: http://www.oecd.org/pisa/46643496.pdf

    I "ll willingly answer your questions: "The national core curriculum is determined by the Finnish National Board of Education. It includes the objectives and core contents of different subjects, as well as the principles of pupil assessment, special-needs education, pupil welfare and educational guidance. The principles of a good learning environment, working approaches as well as the concept of learning are also addressed in the core curriculum. The present national core curriculum for basic education was confirmed in January 2004 and it was introduced in schools in August 2006. The education providers, usually the local education authorities and the schools themselves draw up their own curricula for pre-primary and basic education within the framework of the national core curriculum. These curricula may be prepared for individual municipalities or institutions or include both sections." That means, that every municipalities and public schools, as well as private schools have to make their own curricula. In these curricula they can more detailed to determine´the aims and contents of their own. Local characteristics and emphasis are so possible, but any contradictions with the national core curriculum are possible. Still, the level of the national core curriculum is partly quite common, and the requirements can be fullfilled in many alternative ways. You'll find this information in briefly in: http://www.oph.fi/english/sources_of_information/core_curricula_and_qualification_requirements The books used in our schools are published by the private companies, for example WSOY, OTAVA and SANOMA PRO. http://www.wsoy.fi/etusivu http://www.otava.fi/oppimateriaalit/ http://ratkaisut.sanomapro.fi/web/guest/briefly-in-english For example, SANOMA PRO "offers one of the largest Virtual Learning Environments for K-12 learning to schools and students. This service is called OPIT, and it was launched in 2002. At the moment there are over 170.000 active users. The success of

    Thank you for those valuable information. In Turkey, our curricula and books have been being revised by Turkish Ministry of Education in line with constructivist perpectives. Additionally, the government has decided to produce "enriched books" which are electronic versions of traditional books including multimedia materials to introduce educational technology to the new education system. Still, who will produce the books are under discussion. That's why I decided to examine different education systems in the world to have an idea about successful decisions and implementations. As far as I understand, books are prepared by private companies in Finland. I will check the links that you provided about book companies for having more detailed insight. Still, would you please tell me what happens if the curricula prepared by local authorities contradict the principles and objectives of national core curriculum? Do local authorities still have right to implement them?
  •  
    I think the situation you presented is not possible becouse of the process of planning and executing the local curriculum. The teachers, teachers principals and local authorities in Finland are very engaged in the national core curriculum. Further, there exists space for adjustments, emphases and interpretation inside the national guidelines.
  •  
    Ok thanks, it is not surprising to rank in 5 if you arrange your system according to the needs of your students and provide high quality teachers.

Computers 'do not improve' pupil results, says OECD - BBC News - 1 views

  •  
    Investing heavily in school computers and classroom school does not improve pupils' performance, says a global study from the OECD. The think tank says frequent use of computers in schools is more likely to be associated with lower results. The OECD's education director Andreas Schleicher says school school had raised "too many false hopes".
  •  
    I think the report does not show that technology is useless, but shows that we still need enourmous work on learning and teaching effective use of it. Here is another piece of news showing many technology use technology for teacher-centered, traditional education. It brought my mind the concept of "teacher effect" that we talked in the class.

The State of Digital Education Infographic - 6 views

  •  
    This infographic is to show some dynamics that make a shift to technology in education necessary. Examples given in it present the alterative power the internet has. And, the personalized learning is one of the most important advantages of technology use as an alternative to "one-size-fits-all" models as discussed in readings, which is emphasized in this infographic too.

    I have a question :) Online tools for enhancing the learning or is it an alternative for the schools?
  •  
    I guess, depending on the case, the answer is both. As presented in the infographic, there are situations -for example where people can not reach schools as a result of various reasons- that make online tools a good alternative for the schools. I believe that "alternative" is a keyword for this discussion and presenting people different choices is a good approach for me. There are ideas emphasizing that "school will not replace school but school who do not use school will be replaced" which can be agreed upon; yet, there are others too. For example, can we ignore the ideas of progressivists if they aim to use school to create the ideal conditions that can not be realized in institutionalized schools for the education they think the most proper?
  •  
    Of course, we cannot ignore "use of technology" to create ideal conditions for today's education settings. Then, it can be said use effectively and benefited from it or them.

How to Deliver Performance Feedback Using Avatars - 0 views

  •  
    "Delivering Performance Feedback to Teachers" is an interactive and conversation-based training simulation that lets principals practice giving feedback to virtual teacher (avatars). I think the game is beyond helpful due to the fact as Teachers leaders, it's hard to give a neutral feedback to the Teachers from time to time, which may deter the leaders from giving it at all.

Professional Guidance on the Use of Electronic Communication and Social Media - 2 views

  •  
    I do not know if a similar guide is available for Turkish teachers, but the General Teaching Council for Scotland has prepared a guidance document to help Scottish teachers with "identifying potential dangers, offering some guidance about how to avoid them and providing a context for responsible, professional use of electronic communication and social media." The guide concludes as follows: Before posting materials online stop and ask yourself: (1) Will the content reflect poorly on you, your teachers, employer or the teaching profession? (2) Is your intention to post this material driven by personal reasons or professional reasons? (3) Are you confident that the comment or other media in question, if accessed by others, (colleagues, parents etc) would be considered reasonable and appropriate?

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom - 5 views

  •  
    In the article, you can find beneficial explanation of advantages and limitations of flipped classrooms.
  •  
    Thank you for this informative and easy-to-read article Ezgi. I agree with most of what the writer argues; however, the 2nd con about "trusting" the student made me feel a bit unease because as teachers and also human beings we have to trust others at least to a certain degree and I believe that teachers are a bit way too sceptical as to their students' credibility. I get the reasons behind this and totally agree yet still argue that we shouldn't count "trusting the student" as a con for flipped classrooms. After all, in a traditional teachers, the teacher still counts on the student when she sees a completed homework which might have been done by the student's father.
  •  
    Thanks for your sharing Ezgi, I really like it :) In my opinion, 5th con is valuable to discuss because there are so many studies in the literature indicating that screen time has been considered as a main issue for physical inactivity among children and adolescences. Almost all parents complain about their children's long time usage of technological devices. Therefore, while planning a flipped classroom, this subject must be considered seriously.

    The results of the current study show that teachers involved in Fatih Project were especially content with being able to make their lessons visually more appealing for their students. They were, however, not satisfied with the in-service training provided, especially in understanding ways to effectively integrate the technologies into their teaching, and the limitations put upon Internet access from the tablets. The impacts of these tools on their teaching practices were very minimal.
