A REPORT FROM THE CoSN DELEGATION TO NORWAY AND FINLAND

SEPTEMBER 23–OCTOBER 1, 2018

CoSN Report on Education Technology Integration

itslearning has been the preferred learning management system in Norway for 20 years and one of the top players in the Finnish education sector.

 

Looking Beyond Our Borders

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) is committed to advancing a global dialogue focused on the strategic uses of technology for the improvement of teaching and learning in elementary and secondary schools. As part of this commitment, CoSN has previously led delegations to Europe, Asia, and South America.

Why Norway and Finland?
Student academic achievement in Finland ranks high on international surveys like OECD’s Better Life Index and PISA. Norway regularly illustrates strong student achievement and new measures focusing on future learning development.

“(Norway and Finland)… are using technology effectively while making investments in their individual teachers and students,”

Tom Ryan, Chair of CoSN Board of Directors

Empowering Education

At the end of the visit, CoSN delegates were able to look back on their experiences and identify significant takeaways. This report, A System Built on Trust, is now available to you.

The senior group from CoSN found that schools in both countries empower education by emphasizing formative assessment and using data in real-time. They also invest in students by cultivating a mindset to encourage lifelong learning and digital competency.

By integrating technology into the classroom through the itslearning LMS, we give educators the tools to teach in an engaging and meaningful way for the best possible learning outcomes. Our LMS platform fosters digitally competent, independent, and critical thinkers.
