Start using Innovative ways of working in a peer-learning network

The Innovative ways of working training provides teachers and pupils with new perspectives on the use of digital tools. The first part of the training includes remote lessons in which the teachers participate with their pupils. The new digital working methods are thus immediately put into practice, and teachers get a practical example of the use of work tools. The remote lessons are complemented and deepened by eLearning material for the teacher, a common reflection afternoon and small teaching experiments carried out in the classroom.

The training is funded by the Finnish National Agency for Education and free of charge. It will be fully implemented on a remote basis. Municipalities/schools are responsible for the replacement costs of teachers. The language of the training is Finnish.

Target group
