Commentary by Stephen Downes

The LeGroup research group has announced Edukata, the innovative learning activity design toolkit. In the announcement, Teemu Leinonen writes "surprisingly there are a lot of similarities between the educational systems in Finland and in Shanghai (yes both are doing very will in PISA). I wrote: 'If I’ll compare the basic education in Shanghai and Finland it is amazing how similar the systems are. Both emphasis equality, open tracks, teacher training, as well as teachers and schools autonomy. All this is done by combining these priorities with fact-based centralized planning.'" And he notes "the main people behind Edukata have been Tarmo Toikkanen and Anna Keune."
