Growing Mind- Educational transformations for facilitating sustainable personal, social and institutional renewal (2018- 2023)
Growing Mind is a Research Hub that brings together research projects within education and psychology. The Growing Mind project aims at producing means for the renewal and development of schools, teachers and students on the personal, social, and institutional level. The project aims for societal impact and brings to the forefront the challenges arising from digitalization on the social, personal and institutional level. The project activities are done in cooperation between school practitioners and academic research. The activities support the aims of the new core curriculum, students’ 21st century skills and teachers’ professional development.
The project is coordinated by the Faculty of Educational Science of the University of Helsinki and carried out in cooperation with the City of Helsinki Education division and the national Innokas Network. It is funded by the Strategic Research Council which operates in connection with the Academy of Finland.
