  • Penn-Finn Learnings 2013: A Journey of Inquiry | EdutopiaI love this trip that is happening in Finland, especially the transparency. I'm going to be “hanging out” with some of those in Finland in the hangout on Wednesday. You can look at what they are doing and how they are traveling and sharing. I think more information-gathering trips should be this transparent. “Doctoral learners from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education will spend a “week in the schools” — the schools of Helsinki, that is — looking at a variety of research areas through the lenses of students, teachers, parents and leaders. These lead learners will use that week to reflect upon where the United States and Finland agree and disagree on core beliefs surrounding teaching, learning and leadership.”
