Are you interested in Finnish school system? Do you want to see phenomenon-based learning in action? Come to visit pop up school in Central Library Oodi, on 29-30 August! 

Two Helsinki-based comprehensive schools, Hiidenkivi and Ressu comprehensive schools, will set up a two-day pop up school at Oodi this week.

The pop up school is open to everyone, and offers visitors a chance to learn how comprehensive schools carry out phenomenon-based learning. 

On the second floor of Oodi, in the Kuutio space, some of the subject-matter experts, teachers and 50 learners of Hiidenkivi and Ressu comprehensive schools will showcase their way of carrying out a period of phenomenon-based learning.

The pop up school will cover a number of themes, one of them being the birth of civilisation.

Visitors can follow the teaching on-site and present questions to the teachers and learners in Finnish or English. The event also offers visitors a chance to supplement their own knowledge in a genuine learning situation together with 5th, 6th and 9th graders.

The pop up school is a genuine learning situation, in which the learner is both a maker and a researcher. The role of the teacher is to steer the learner in learning and finding information.
