Making Toholampi International
In the future, comprehensive schools will need to become international, but what does this mean in practice? In this HundrED experiment schools in the small municipality of Toholampi will strive to develop themselves by actively operating on an international level. The aim is to create multiple new models that can be used to assist other Finnish schools in adding an international aspect to their daily school lives.
What is it that you will concretely accomplish in the experiment?
During the course of Fall 2016 we will begin contacting other countries and at the same time we will tighten our mutual collaboration with other elementary schools, middle schools and high schools within the thematics of internationality. We will also emphasize internationality in specific school subjects such as history. We will also start a blog together with our collaboration schools where we write about the school’s daily life.
Describe why you feel it is meaningful to be a part of HundrED.
It feels great to be a part of a project like HundrED that wants to impact the future of schools and education. We want to offer our students international possibilities of connecting with others and also to maintain the students’ interest towards the world.
Will be announced later.
