Conhecer a Finlândia profunda – 2

Os professores Ana Rita Correia, Armindo Serra, Carmo Martins, Teresa Ramos e Sandra Silva continuam a sua formação Erasmus+ “Student-centered learning and 21st century skills”.

O quinto dia foi dedicado à visita à Vesala Comprehensive School, nos arredores de Helsínquia, uma escola com a particularidade de possuir 40% de alunos cuja língua materna não é o finlandês. Os visitantes puderam verificar os desafios de integração que estes alunos colocam – integração linguística e social – assim como as formas como se vão vencendo.

Após a visita, os professores partiram à descoberta de mais alguns locais de Helsínquia, destacando-se a ilha de Suonmelinna.

Os últimos dias destinaram-se a workshops sobre ferramentas tecnológicas e à escola de sonho, ao jantar de encerramento, ao balanço do curso e à cerimónia de entregas dos certificados.

Deep delving into Finland – part 2

Ana Rita Correia, Armindo Serra, Carmo Martins, Teresa Ramos and Sandra Silva continue their Erasmus+ teacher training course “Student-centered learning and 21st century skills”.

Day 5 was dedicated to visiting Vesala Comprehensive School, in the outskirts of Helsinki. In this school, about 40% of students don’t speak Finnish as their mother tongue. The visitors could see the challenges posed by the integration of these students and how problems are tackled, not only in terms of language learning but also in the social environment.

After the school visit, the Portuguese teachers went on a tour of Suonmenlinna (one among thousands of Finnish islands), which is located near Helsinki.

Over the last few days, most workshops focused on tech tools and the dream school. There was a closing ceremony where participants received their course certificates, after a summary and course evaluation.
