March–April 2013. Working with Roy Pea, H-STAR

I am the Scientific Leader of the Finnish research consortium Finnable 2020, promoting a new eco system in learning and breaking barriers between formal and non-formal learning using new technology. I am the PI in the “Boundless Classroom – Digital Story Telling” project within Finnable 2020, having connections with Californian schools. The focus is on students’ creating learning contents using video technology. It also connects to the Finnish-American SAVI project, where we collaborate with Roy Pea. I also have a joint project of new teachers’ mentoring, in cooperation with a number of Stanford University researchers.
