In recent years, education has evolved to the point where learning can take place anywhere and at any time, usually beyond the walls of the traditional learning space. New trends have emerged including blended learning , personalised learning environments ( PLEs ) Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), mobile learning and the flipped classroom.

Of particular interest, I thought, was Finland’s focus on early childhood learning — what they call ECEC (Early Childhood Education and Care). According to the Finnish Ministry of Education , “Learning in kindergarten should be based on playing, exploration, and concrete activities (taking into account children’s need for learning through imagination and playing), and on intertwining creativity, knowledge, and experiences with stories or actual occasions.”.
