Fake news deviates from to varying degrees, and if it is 100% false, it may be possible to judge. More difficult is the half-truth; this is undoubtedly a test of awareness and judgment for the general public. Between true and false: 'Finland abolished disciplines'? When the news first came out a few years ago, it caused extensive discussions in many English-language reports (for example, the British "Independent" report on March 20, 2015 ) and various education-related forums, vividly discussing it. The abolition of disciplines in Finland. But the above-mentioned "Independent" report is actually half-truth news.
As far as the real part is concerned, Finland has indeed strengthened "phenomenon-based learning" in the new syllabus, and encouraged teachers photo color correction services of various subjects to cooperate in teaching across disciplinary boundaries. The false part can be divided into the following aspects. First, Finland has not abolished traditional subject teaching. Instead of abolishing them, they affirmed the existence of disciplines, and opposed only relying on "phenomena-based" learning, because without the support of disciplines, students' knowledge systems became fragmented .
Due to successive inquiries, the Finnish Ministry of Education put the topic " subject teaching in Finnish schools has not been abolished " on its official website, emphasizing that "although the new curriculum implemented in August 2016 has some changes, it is by no means abolishing the teaching of various subjects. .” And “In order to meet the challenges of the future, the emphasis is on the introduction and practice of transversal (generic) competence and interdisciplinary approaches.” Therefore, the headline of the “Independent” said that Finland abolished disciplines. is the first fake. Second, since the subject has not been abolished, the “comprehensive” use of situational and thematic teaching cannot be established. Currently Finland maintains professors in different subjects, including mother tongue, second national language (Swedish), foreign language, mathematics, environment, biology.
