A week ago I gave a keynote at the Universidad de Ibagué in Tolima, Colombia. The Universidad de Ibagué is very advanced in the use of ICT in education. Most of the professors use Moodle with their in-campus courses and … Continue reading
With my research group we have released a new prototype that aims to help people to learn from each other — as part of their work, in situ, in same time and space where work takes place. The specific target … Continue reading

I am afraid I am now writing some pretty obvious observations. Something we all know. Nothing unique. Unfortunately, I feel that I must write these obvious things as it looks that so many people are ignoring them. Maybe I am … Continue reading

I have come up with a conclusion that for the future of (open) education Internet Archive and Wikidata are the two most important web services in the world. And not only for the open education, but also for the open … Continue reading

I have come-up(* with a simple strategy statement — three points — for the future of learning. It works in all levels of education, from kindergartens to workplace learning. (1) Do not select one of the good ways of teaching … Continue reading
I just realized that maybe I should explain the connection between the three points presented in my last post and the overall theme of this blog — Free, Libre and Open Source Software in Education. To improve learning in the … Continue reading
Ten years ago I wrote a blog post with the title (Critical) history of ICT in education – and where we are heading? I feel that the post is still pretty accurate interpretation of the history, but there are some … Continue reading

“Education is a source of pride in Finnish society. However, the transformation of working life, digitisation, growing inequality, multiculturalism, and globalisation pose challenges for the future of the education sector. How might education and training respond to changing skill needs … Continue reading
Imagine a jazz band. A guitarist, a saxophonist, a pianist, a bass player and a drummer. The band is lead by the guitar player. He is the one that is, not only composing the first ideas, but also organizing most … Continue reading
This autumn our research group was involved in the design and implementation of a MOOC for Finnish teachers. The Code Alphabet MOOC was designed to help teachers bring coding to their classes, as proposed by the national curriculum framework for primary education in Finland from 2016 onwards. The national curriculum states, for example, that a […]

It is well documented and known that there is a gender bias on Wikipedia. In the Finnish Wikipedia only 19 % of the biography articles are about women. So, what can we do to get more women to the Finnish Wikipedia? How could we get more women to write Wikipedia articles? How could we get […]

I have been teaching over 20 years. One thing many people do not necessary know about the work of a teacher, is that big part of teaching is to develop it — gradually by iterating the course design. Introduction to Media Art and Culture course I have been teaching for 6 years. Before it I […]

Victor Papanek begins his book, published in 1971, with the words “All men are designers”. By this, Papanek means that an element of design is involved in almost everything people do. Design is the basis of all human activity. The fact that Papanek himself was an industrial designer gives more weight to his words, even […]
The term e-learning is close to 20 years old. In 2004, 12 years ago, I wrote somehow polemic text with the title E-learning is dead. Long live learning!” I now read it and felt that I could update it with some new thoughts, although the original one is not a bad text as a such, […]
I am writing a short article about a blended-learning experiment we did the last autumn semester. Before checking the actual research data we gathered from the experiment, I wanted to post here some first thoughts. Notes to myself. Here they are. I explained the experiment already shortly in an earlier post I wrote some time ago. […]
