FIN-EST Education Trends Webinar

FIN-EST Education Trends Webinar

FIN-EST Education Trends is a collaboration between FinnAgora and Estonian Institute, the Finnish and Estonian institutes in Hungary. In FIN-EST Education Trends we are introducing two up and coming approaches to elementary school education that are gaining traction in Finland and Estonia. Phenomenon-based learning and teaching programming and robotics might be the future of education, but what do they mean? How can a teacher implement these approaches in the classroom? How to engage students in learning in new ways? These and many more questions will be answered in the webinar.

Our guests:
