Hi, I’m Evelyse Eerola, a graduate teacher in Brazil who has been working in Finland for almost ten years. My passion and curiosity for Finnish teaching methodology meant that, from the beginning, I started to study the Finnish educational system and how it could be adapted to the reality of another country.
My goal has been to contribute to the discussion of the Finnish educational model system since 2012 through lectures, workshops and consultancies.
The basis of my work is my experience as a teacher both in Brazil and in Finland. The experience and practice in the classroom is what provides a vision capable of analyzing and executing objective actions in relation to the applicability in other contexts and what the world can learn from education in Finland.
In Finland I have been teaching and participating in projects in several contexts. One of my specialties has been studying and work with the design of the Finnish National Core Curriculum.
Lectures about the Finnish educational systems for
teachers visiting Helsinki.
The lecture comprises the main aspects of education
system adopted in Finland.
The society, the universal basic education, the culture
of teaching, the teachers, the National Core Curriculum
and other pedagogic aspects.
The workshop is the possibility for visiting
teachers to understand better the information
received during the visit in Finland. The work
it is fully collaborative between the facilitator
and the participants. On this occasion, we analyzed
the reality of the schools and the main wishes of the
participants. It is at this time that we transform information
in possible action and, through the inspiration of the
educational Finnish system, we are able to insert promises
of applicability that educators will take home.
Participants will carry in their suitcase an action plan
and a certificate of participation.
The program offers a workshop with a standard
design, however, the group can add points of interest.
The workload is also according to the needs of the group.
In our channel on YouTube, webEduca-ProjetoFinlândia, you can
