In Finland, Teaching Computer Science Without Computers - The Atlantic
Feb 24, 2017
When it comes to technology, it’s hard to evaluate just how well the Finnish approach is working. Computer science isn’t covered on international tests, and it’s a relatively recent addition to the curriculum. But Liukas and others point to Finnish inventions like Linux and Nokia as evidence that the country’s education system sparks the innovation and entrepreneurship that will drive the tech-based economy of the future. And while the United States is obviously a different beast than Finland, with a host of challenges, as Liukas tells the children she meets, “Even the biggest problems in the world are just tiny problems stuck together.”
