We have selected one hundred educational innovations from Finland

From December 2015 - February 2016, schools across Finland had the opportunity to submit their ideas for experiments to be trialed over the course of one school year. Over 500 schools and organizations applied.

We received applications from preschools, comprehensive schools and high schools from all regions of Finland. The innovations varied from coding clubs to interactive board games; whilst some of the innovations submitted were existing ideas, others offered were completely new.

To read about each project, follow their project pages here. Please note that all new content is translated into English as quickly as possible. If an update is still in Finnish please do check back in a day or two to read it in English.
