Our pedagogical design is based on engagement models and pedagogical standards set by Education Alliance Finland. Our teaching and learning goals align with the Finnish National Curriculum and the IB Curriculum.
Design-based project learning
Design-based project learning creates room for creativity and innovation. It enhances information exchange between students and promotes motivation.
We emphasize students’ autonomy. This approach allows self-regulation, independent decision-making, increased communication and collaboration between students.
We offer open-ended problems and projects. This approach offers resources for problem-solving . It guides students to become creative problem solvers.
We grant opportunities for growing creativity, ICT skills, entrepreneurial attitude, working-life skills, learning-to-learn skills and critical thinking.
Coding, robotics and AI
Our program promotes digital literacy and overall understanding of computational systems. Our materials build knowledge and skills by introducing programming and robotics first, allowing tools for practical AI exploration and experimenting.
Transversal 21st century skills
We don’t know what subject skills and work fields remain relevant in the future. We teach 21st Century skills to students to promote lifelong learning and ability to adapt to ever-changing world.
While each course in our program has its own specific learning goals in terms of knowledge and skills, they all share transversal learning goals.
Creative expression, entrepreneurship, accountability, team work, self-efficacy, and inquiry are some of the core skills and values that our programs aims to impart on the learners. These are not studied separately, but are present in the design of all learning activities. But engaging with the projects and exercises, the students will learn these skills, values, and behaviors.
