Away with subjects?! Finland one of the first countries to reorganize the entire curriculum as integrated curriculum. Phenomena based learning replaces encyclopedic approach to learning objectives, a ”new pair of lenses that make teaching a lot more exciting and help us look forward into the next century. It is helping students take control of their own learning” (M. Markus, media specialist)
