The Finnish school system is characterised by a powerful myth of how learning at school takes place. This book challenges the prevailing myth and presents a new, flipped learning.
Flipped learning has a strong practical foundation. It emphasises a human approach to learning and the student's freedom to learn. In flipped learning, teachers have more time to communicate with their students as individuals, and the students can tap into the teacher's know-how as a route to self-motivation.
The book challenges teachers to develop their teaching towards a student-oriented culture of learning. The authors are the most widely recognised advocates and developers of flipped learning in Finland.
