Finland 100

We have selected one hundred educational innovations from Finland in 2016-2017. Innovations vary from coding clubs to interactive board games; from leadership models to assessment practices. The Finland 100 project is an official part of a celebration programme for Finland’s centenary of independence in 2017.
