Taught by Finland

Tim Walker, Sept 02, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Doug Belshaw linked to this blog by an American teacher from Boston teaching in Finland for the first time. The content is really interesting, but the writing style is abrasive, consisting entirely of short one (or maybe two) sentence paragraphs. It's a style of writing I've seen more and more from American edubloggers (you know who you are). The one-sentence paragraph is a type of emphasis, and these blogs read like everything is emphasized. Why now just write in all-caps and be done with it? Perhaps after a year of learning from Finnish students Tim Walker will write in clear well-structured paragraphs. In the meantime, if you can slog through the writing, I recommend the blog for the content.
