'It's a political failure': how Sweden's celebrated schools system fell into crisis Gustav Fridolin, Sweden’s rather youthful education minister, emerges from behind his desk in a pleasant office in central Stockholm wearing what looks like a pair of Vans and the open, fresh-faced smile of a newly qualified teacher. The smile falters when he begins to describe the plight of Sweden’s schools and the scale of the challenge that lies ahead. Fridolin, it turns out, is the man in charge of rescuing a school system in crisis. Sweden, once regarded as a byword for high-quality education – free preschool, formal school at seven, no fee-paying private schools, no selection – has seen its scores in Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) assessments plummet in recent years. Fridolin acknowledges the sense of shame and embarrassment felt in Sweden. “The problem is that this embarrassment is carried by the teachers.

{Valentines day} pixelated popup card I‘ve been scratching my head trying to come up with a card for my hubby {AKA the non-romantic type}. I finally decided to make this pixely popup heart card! They are really minimal (which I love) and take about 20 minutes to make (that includes the card, insert and envelope).

Paper Toys: Flextangles Today’s paper toys, Flextangles, are the fourth project in our collaborative series STEAM POWER: Empowering kids to explore the world through creative projects. Today’s topic is COMPUTE! Since I recently answered this question wrong, I decided it might be good idea for me to limit my math based project to something I’m good at: geometry. I’ve been itching to try making a flexagon ever since my friend Erica mentioned them, so I decided it was high time we made one.

Classroom Timers - Fun Timers We've decided to put our new fun timers, and timers for classrooms into a nice sub-section. These are great timers for children, or maybe meetings, or anything really. They just add some extra fun to the usual countdown timers :-) Classic Classroom Timers: Explosive Fun Timers: Pop-Up Photo Box (Gift Idea) - the DIY village Earlier this month I got the February issue of Country Living. Do you remember last month when I took a simple dollar store pine box and made it into a monogrammed jewelry box? I gave it to my mother for Christmas. She absolutely loved it, that was until I took it back from her (she can thank Country Living for that). As soon as I saw this project I knew I had to convert her jewelry box into a fun pop up photo box. Plus with my parent’s 43rd wedding anniversary coming up I thought this would be great.

Beyond Academics: What a Holistic Approach to Learning Could Look Like From a child’s perspective, school, extracurricular activities and home are part of the continuous experience of life. From the perspective of teachers, coaches and parents, those experiences may seem more differentiated and are thus treated separately. However, if the adults in a child’s life approach his or her growth as a collaboration following a clear developmental path, every child will have a better chance at a life filled with choices and the skills to achieve goals, according to a report. “The idea is that if everybody starts to have a common understanding about what they’re trying to do and what an effective approach would be, and they understand that it’s a shared responsibility to help kids develop and learn over time, then hopefully it will lead to more discussion,” said Jenny Nagaoka, lead author of the Foundations for Young Adult Success: A Developmental Framework and deputy director of the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research (CCSR).

Easy Toothpick Painting with Kids If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to our mailing list. Thanks for visiting! Have you ever painted with a toothpick before? If yes, you know how fun and easy it is. Paper Chain People Paper Chain People Craft While putting together these Christmas paper chains, I decided to create several more paper chain templates of people, animals and fun shapes. My kids love making accordion fold paper chains – I guess sometimes the simplest kids crafts can also be the most satisfying!
