Eduix participates in the webinar: Business Resilience through Talent Funding

It is proven that resilience and leadership are important factors of future development of businesses. They will be discussed in the webinar organized by the Nordic Asean Business Forum (NABD) with support from Business Finland. 

Representing Eduix, at 10h35 I will give a short introduction about Eduix, and contribute with my perspectives on how a diverse team in a Finnish company benefits its business, what are the challenges of being an international talent (for me and the company), my contribution to the international market, and my message for Finnish companies in hiring international talents.

Hope to see you there!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2023!

This year we have supported Team Rynkeby’s fundraising for Aamu Suomen Lasten Syöpäsäätiö and Sylva ry.

Money is needed

Pediatric cancer remains the most deadly disease among children aged 1-15 years. That is why we support Team Rynkeby, which raises millions of EURO’s every year for the Childhood Cancer Foundation.

The majority of the funds raised go to vital research so that more children can survive cancer with fewer survivor effects.

We wish all our customers and partners a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2023!

Wihi truly supports students’ personalized learning

Although “personalized learning” has been a buzz term in the education field, there are not many concrete examples of holistic edtech approaches to the change in teachers’ work that actually supports personalized learning for their students.

A team of Finnish researchers, in collaboration with Eduix, have addressed this problem within the core task of university’s students: thesis writing and project management. For that, they developed Wihi to support the supervision and management of thesis work, considering the needs of the three players involved in such academic projects : the students, their supervisors, and the faculty coordinators – who need to monitor the progress of such work.

“On one hand, Wihi is a tool for teachers to supervise thesis processes, but on the other hand, it is a tool helping the thesis-writing students to organize their work in individual level.”

How Wihi has supported us building education ecosystems

The annual IT days of Finnish HEIs was held this year in Lahti on the joint campus of LAB University of Applied Sciences and LUT University. The days offered a wide range of presentations on current IT topics with the theme “IT with a purpose”, bringing together around 500 IT professionals from higher education institutions, from management to support staff from all the corners of Finland. During the first day of the event, I gave a presentation about how Finland can use learning technologies to support building education ecosystems. Below you find a summary of what we discussed there!

Information center about the Edupreneurs project

In March 2021, Glowdom, in partnership with Eduix and the Namibian Business Innovation Institute (NBII) launched a digital platform for regional strategic partnership called Edupreneurs. The Edupreneurs project was funded by the Southern African Innovation Support Programme 2.

This blog post works as an information center and gathers materials about the Edupreneurs project with the purpose of disseminating our lessons learned.

Supporting education ecosystem building with digitalisation

In October 21st 2022, I had the honour to attend the panel discussion Embracing digitalisation to improve the sustainable delivery of education and training in Africa in ADEA Trennale 2022. My topic was focused on how digitalisation can support building education ecosystems. The ADEA Triennale is one of Africa’s high-level forums for political dialogue on education. The conference focuses on critical themes that transform Africa’s educational systems for sustainable social and economic development.

The objective of the panel discussion was to share experiences and working practices around EdTech issues, share ways how African countries are supporting ICT-oriented education and explore possibilities in regional cooperation. Below you find my contribution to the panel session based on the Recommendation Paper written in collaboration with Dr. Altti Lagstedt during the Edupreneurs project.

Building partnership in Ghana for digitalizing thesis work in higher education institutions

During 25th and 30th September, Eduix and Haaga-Helia went to Ghana to visit and support our pilot projects in two universities: the Ghana Institute of Journalism and the University of Ghana.

Dr. Altti Lagstedt, principal lecturer at the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, wrote his impressions about the trip at the university blog:

What is remarkable for all these meetings and sessions was the clearly positive attitude towards education digitalization. The information gathered from focus group sessions and interviews show, that there clearly is a readiness for education digital transformation.

Dr. Altti Lagstedt

Such visits and pilots are part of the research project Eduditra, funded by Eduix.

Digitalizing research work and academic projects with Wihi

Continuously producing high quality research is a core activity of research centers, such as universities. However, managing such academic projects at the institutional level is still quite a challening task for everyone involved: students, supervisors and faculty coordinators.
