Remember the time international press wrote (quite misleadingly) that Finland’s school system was about to get rid of teaching subjects? Or the articles announcing how all Estonian schoolchildren will start coding? The true stories behind those headlines were phenomenon-based learning as a part of the curriculum (alongside more traditional learning) in Finland and the beginning of ProgeTiger programme (in some schools) in Estonia. What’s the situation now? Watch the Est-Fin Education Webinar.
