CONTEMPORARY EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS IN FINLAND SHOWN AS POEM OBJECTS

Abstract

This educational-artistic project was conducted in 2018 with almost a hundred students studying the Degree in Primary Education of the University of Lapland (Finland). The experiment took place in Visual art education basic course. The core objective was to prompt the students to reflect on problems in the contemporary education system, and then show the main one as a poem-object photograph. The design of the project was based on theories of Critical Pedagogy, and Project-Based Learning method was used.

This Pecha Kucha presentation shows thematic examples of images which students created individually, or in groups. The problems varied from unhealthy school buildings and lack of money for education to issues connected with digital device and social media.
