Episode 4

Acclaimed science teacher Dr Marianne Juntunen | Pioneering sustainable science education in Finland | PART 1 &2

One of the secrets of the success of the world class Finnish education is the teachers. I am very excited to talk with Dr Marianne Juntunen, a 32-year-old STEM teacher based in Lapland. In 2016 Marianne received The Most Innovative Science Teacher Award for her STEM education guide she co-created for Finnish schools from LUMA, the science education development organisation of the Finnish National Board of Education.

In PART 1, Marianne talks about her journey and passion to become a STEM teacher. In Part 2 she talks about her daily life as a teacher in Finland and the teaching methods currently used in Finnish schools.  The world class Finnish education has also its challenges. How to service those students who have learning difficulties as well as those who are very talented.
