Teachers should work collaboratively and share their resources and experience with each other (3, 4).

Teachers get enough trained (4).

Schools can look for sponsors or apply for grants (6).



Teachers can pay more attention to individual students (individual approach).

Students are more motivated and involved. Active participation makes them reach a better success.



Mix between individual and cooperation:

Start a task individually for a few minutes- find out as much as possible

Then a pair work, to work with the same task together for maybe 10 minutes

Two and two pairs work together, to develop the amount of knowledge for maybe 20-30 minutes


Give each group different tasks  (4 different Norwegian animals), new group consists of one from each animal-group, who teach the others






Try to get the students use their creativity


Use of learing-strategies:


“Start with a WISH”  (important WORDS, ILLUSTRATIONS, SUMMARY and HEADINGS) before start reading the text


Flipped Classroom

Our Norwegian colleagues presented a training session and multiplier event to teachers from other Norwegian Schools and from Estonia on flipping the classroom. During this meeting they presented innovative strategies for extending student learning beyond the school walls. Further information on the flipped classroom is available on request
