Finland is a worldwide pedagogical reference. For years, the Finnish education system has consistently ranked among the top in the PISA report, which measures and ranks the quality of different education systems around the world. Famous for its constant emphasis on innovation, creativity, and the search for new methodologies, Finland is a must-visit destination for educators like those in the team at European Erasmus School Casa Al-Andalus in Spain who strive to offer the best quality.
As the president of European Erasmus School Casa Al-Andalus in Spain, A. Fabián Jiménez visited Finland during the last week of February, making stops in places like Ivalo, Helsinki, and Jyväskylä, where he celebrated the Day of Kalevala. In Jyväskylä, he had the opportunity to give a lecture at the Gloria Cultural Centre on the teaching of Esperanto as an educational tool. Since 2019, thanks to the Erasmus+ project “Esperanto Komuniko” coordinated by A. Fabián Jiménez, IES Almenara became the first public educational institution in Spain to offer Esperanto as an elective subject in the first year of high school.
Months later, we had the honor of hosting Mikko Saikkonen, the director of Jyväskylä Adult Education Centre, in Vélez-Málaga. He conducted the “Leadership in Education and New Methodologies” course at European Erasmus School Casa Al-Andalus in Spain for a week.
At European Erasmus School Casa Al-Andalus in Spain, we work towards building a quality European education through dialogue, the exchange of ideas, and cooperation. It’s a philosophy that we strive to incorporate into all our courses and activities.
