The Rhetoric of the 'Digital Leap' in Finnish Educational Policy Documents
Saari, Antti; Säntti, Janne
European Educational Research Journal, v17 n3 p442-457 May 2018
This article discusses the rhetorical strategies in Finnish educational policy documents dealing with digitalization. The documents argue that the national education system is in dire need of digital technologies in order to modernize its pedagogy and secure national economic competitiveness. Finnish municipalities, schools and teachers have high levels of autonomy in implementing curricula, so there is a challenge to them to adopt digitalization at all levels of education.
