Savonlinna University Practice School is a small elementary and middle school (grades one to nine) near one of the University of Eastern Finland’s campuses. The elementary and middle school is now playing a central role in the university’s educational research and experimentation. The school has specialised in the use of PC tablets in primary school. Kimmo Nyyssönen is the teacher in charge of coordinating these initiatives. The school already has years of experience in the use of tablets and now wants to find out if it can take things to a new level by discarding books altogether. “Tablets have been in use in Finnish schools for a while, but we are the first school to use them extensively in several grades. We are also the first to try leaving traditional school books behind,” he says. They call their new project Future Classroom 2020.
