Helsinki Education Week provides 150 different events this year

Helsinki Education week will provide attendees with the best pedagogic insights and practical examples, as well as opportunities for discussion and co-development. The programme features events that are sure to interest the guardians of learners as well. Some of the events will be held online and others on-site at schools, daycare centres and educational institutions, as well as other venues across the city. Events will be available in Finnish, Swedish and English. 

Head of Education Division Satu Järvenkallas is happy about the high-quality and plentiful programme of the theme week: 

“Our schools, daycare centres and educational institutions are doing wonderful work every day. Helsinki Education Week provides us with an excellent opportunity to share this know-how with others. It’s great that so many of our units will be presenting their operations and best insights. The events held by our cooperation partners and international professionals in the field will beautifully supplement and diversify the offerings of the week. I hereby invite everyone interested in learning and education to attend the events of the week!” 

Highlights from the diverse and plentiful programme 

This year, the central theme of Helsinki Education Week is well-being. Well-being and health are prerequisites for learning. Over the week, operators will provide presentations on subjects such as wellbeing-related development work at the general upper secondary schools of the City of Helsinki, as well as proactive work to prevent school absences. For example, of the schools taking part, Käpylä Comprehensive School will provide a presentation on systematically practising emotional skills, while Laajasalo Comprehensive School will showcase a safe transition from primary school to lower secondary school. Pupils of Hietakumpu Primary School will provide examples of how pupils’ own actions can yield good things at their school. 

The week will also provide plenty of good practical tips for education work. Attendees can look into aspects such as various digital tools, AI-based applications, live-action role playing, robotics and how innovative daycare centres carry out digital and technological pedagogy in their everyday operations. Månsas lågstadieskola will provide book tips for getting young pupils excited about reading, while Roihuvuori Primary School will provide tips for schools’ environmental education work. In turn, Daycare Kankarepuisto will showcase play-based science education.
