Author(s): Lang Markku

We know that world is changing and in near future workforce is going to be more independent, contingent and temporary. Therefore future learning environments and learning activities are essential to prepare all students for the challenges of work and life. \n\nFinland has a new core curriculum for basic education, which is focusing on developing future skills (developing the key competences as it is described in curriculum). To train and to develop future skills in schools new methods, learning landscapes and activities are needed.\n\nFuture Classroom Network (european Schoolnet) is using activities as a guideline for creating Learning Zones. These activities and Learning zones are supporting key future skills: \n\nCritical Thinking - Investigate\nCreativity - Create\nCollaboration - Exhange\nLearning to learn - Develop\nDigital competences - Interact\nCommunication - Present\n\nBut how do these future learning activities look and sound like? What are teachers and students doing, when they are training Future skills? How school design should respect it? \n
