Technologies to Support Learning, Well-Being, and Communication

Finnish Institute for Educational Research University of Jyväskylä, Finland


The Finnish information society, including its school system, is facing many challenges at
the moment. Decision makers, such as representatives of the Ministry of Education and
Culture, have raised lively discussion on the basis of the recent PISA results.
1 The trend
among Finnish students’ performance in the PISA study during the last decade is
descendant. Altogether, the recent studies indicate particular worries related to both
negative attitudes and lack of motivation towards learning among Finnish students, as these
factors seem to be coupled with the performance and learning outcomes (Hautamäki,
Kupiainen, Marjanen, Vainikainen, & Hotulainen, 2013; Kupari et al., 2013).
