The benefits of picking a Nordic LMS

Nowadays there is a big focus on the PISA tests done around the globe in order to compare educational systems, and year by year countries see how they ranked so that they can analyze their whole educational system.

 

Do you know who is consistently on top? Nordic educational institutions.

 

For many years in a row, the model used in Scandinavia has been the model that many schools around the world are trying to implement and follow. Why is it that with less academic hours, more recess and less structure students are consistently getting better results?

 

The answer lies in their educational principles and their perception on education. Let’s discuss some of these briefly before seeing why an LMS designed with these principles is the best way to go when it comes to education.


Learning Management Systems have a wide array of uses and benefits depending on your organizational needs or objectives. Educational institutions typically use them as an online education hub, where they can access all the indispensable features for remote or blended learning, such as creating lessons, communicating with students and staff, tracking student achievement and uploading materials. Companies, on the other hand, can use an LMS to make onboarding and employee training more efficient, reduce costs, deliver important content instantly and increase accessibility.

Parents dont worry about choosing the best school in Denmark, Finland or Norway because they trust the system and they know that all the schools are very high quality because they believe in the power of collaboration, of trust and of the development of social skills and competencies rather than a simple memorization of content.

 

An LMS that is built on these academic principles will be one that allows for adaptive experiences where the learner has different paths that will adjust to the learner. This means, the content will be learned, the skills and competencies will be developed but the learner will get to choose how this is done. In this kind of LMS there is not a single activity or task to be developed, and so, this respects the individual process of the learner.

Humans are social learners and we learn best when we are interacting with others, experimenting and teaching others. This is why, even if part of the learning process takes place online, it cannot become a solitary journey.

 

In addition to thinking about how people learn in different ways and so content cant be presented only in one way, there is a great benefit to this LMS which is collaboration. Humans are social learners and we learn best when we are interacting with others, experimenting and teaching others. This is why, even if part of the learning process takes place online, it cannot become a solitary journey.

 

When you are working with a Nordic LMS you can have multiple ways in which students will collaborate and work together because it is well stated that when you go by yourself you can move faster, but when you go together you can move further..
