The StarT public voting ‒ sharing the joy of learning!

 

The LUMA Centre Finland invites everyone to take part in the public voting of StarT. The videos of StarT projects and best practices have now been released on the Youtube channel of StarT. Have a look, get inspired and learn new things about project based learning!

In 2016, the LUMA Centre Finland with their collaborators started a new education model called StarT. The purpose of StarT it to support the implementation of inter-disciplinary approach and cross-curricular studies in schools in accordance with the new national curriculum of Finland. The StarT model is aimed to be implemented in all learning communities from early childhood to upper secondary education.

StarT is exceptional as everyone learns together as a learning community by carrying out phenomenon-based and cross-curricular projects. The main goal of StarT is to strengthen the excitement and interest of children and youngsters towards studying mathematics, natural sciences and technology.

The long-term goal of StarT is to establish the collaborative and inspiring StarT model into the annual activities of schools and other learning communities. The Star teams consisting of children and youngsters from kindergartens, schools, extracurricular groups and homes share the joy of learning in the national and international StarT community, which consisted of nearly 800 learning communities from 36 different countries in 2016-2017.

The videos of the StarT projects and best practices, that the national and international learning communities have produced, have now been released on the Youtube channel of StarT. The videos celebrate the joy of learning and share the excitement of students’ own discoveries with everyone in the world!

The goal of the national and international public voting is to share joy and ideas but also to make it possible for everyone to participate. Everyone can vote simply by liking their favourite project or best practice video on Youtube before the 8th of April!

Your likes will be considered when the nominees for the best projects and practices of 2018 are chosen by the StarT jury, so voting really pays off! The winners of the public voting will also be awarded with a diploma in the international StarT gala. The international StarT gala is the grand final of both the national and international StarT every year, and this year it will take place in Tampere on the 5th of June 2018 as a part of the national LUMA days.

Everyone is warmly welcome to come along to participate in StarT! Vote for your favourite video before 8th of April!
