I had to check it out myself. What has happened in educational exhibition GESS Dubai in three years since I last visited the venue? How does Finnish approach to agile, healthy, personal, equal for everyone, test free, teacher appreciated educational approach resonate in the Middle-East's most advanced region. I was astonished by the vast amount of furniture and technology companies there. Where was the beef...the pedagogical content ? It was missing. Another three years wasted to start the big leap.
Finland did get some awards (Seppo and Funzi) with a small amount of teams we had at the venue. High five to these teams!
