Having fun before school

opinion

Being in another country opens up new possibilities in so many ways.

One of the thing is seeing and learning new ways of doing things. I decided to use my year of study to learn more than Entrepreneurship but also to visit some of the best schools in Sweden.

My main focus is finding schools that are using technology effectively. I immediately contacted the 3rd grade teacher Annika Persson and I got the chance to visit her wonderful students yesterday in Knislinge.

When "Having fun before school" in to the classroom there is a noticeable calm atmosphere. Lamps in the windows, a couch, relaxing music, dimmed lights and all of the students are reading quietly for 30 minutes. After morning reading all the students gathered with Annika and me and the children were properly introduced.

Then they went over todays schedule, took out their morning snacks consisting of apples, kiwis, bananas, crackers and juice and started working in their regular math books… What?

She only uses the iPads when she feels like they add something to improve learning. I saw the students actively engaged in their learning and was impressed with their learning style.
