Opening Windows on Finnish Education
22 April 2021
The Finnish education system is globally well known for its ability to combine high academic performance while building students’ holistic wellbeing. It is based on successful realization of socio-constructivist theories of learning in action. Active student learning and collaboration leads to highly successful learning of both knowledge and skills. With the reflective approach taught early on the students are able to look at the past, the present, and the future.
Entrepreneurship and an entrepreneurial mindset are something that can be learned. The components are creativity, ability to innovate, capabilities for risk management, ability to take responsibility, planning and setting goals, and managing activities to achieve these goals. As labour markets continue to experience rapid and often unpredictable change, entrepreneurial education has become a major area of interest in school development.
