On 17 February 2016, the Finnish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong will host an informative presentation to explain how Finland achieves its success in educational excellence. Keynote educational experts from Finland will share not only the history of how Finland got to this position, but where it plans to go in the future, and how it is managing to use and integrate technology into a new era of education, which maximizes the learning potential of not only children, but also lifelong learners.
Finland has over the last decade been one of the top performing educational nations in the world, as measured by PISA educational league tables. How did a nation with a landmass 25% bigger than the UK and a population of less than 5,5 million people achieve such top results?
The event will be held at SME Help Center beginning from 10am-6pm.
