"Über" For Parents
This experiment aims to develop and pilot a digital tool through which experts from any field can easily volunteer in teaching a subject at school. It could be anything - creativity, solar power, climate change, robotics etc. Not only would this be motivational for students, it would also brilliantly support their learning. The goal is to create an application that is simple yet fully functional and would help all teachers across Finland.
What is the idea of the experiment?
The idea of the experiment is to develop and pilot a simple and effective application that would assist all Finnish teachers in their lessons by bringing experts from different fields of work to teach a class. If the pilot is successful, it may be spread internationally as well.
By bringing the outside world in, schools will be able to access valuable information and add depth to the learning process of each topic.
How will the experiment be scheduled and how will it be put into practice?
The application will be designed over the Summer and Fall of 2016 and piloted in the early Spring of 2017.
