Head of International Assessments for the Education and Youth Board of Estonia, Gunda Tire, explains why the Estonian model is successful and gives her thoughts on the future of digital learning 🇪🇪
My January interview is with Gunda Tire who heads up international assessments for the education and youth board for Estonia. Estonia is a small country with a population of 1.3m, yet its education model is extremely innovative. It has a high PISA ranking in its assessments for reading, maths and science. Gunda was able to provide me with some insight into the Estonian model and her thoughts on the future of digital learning. The country also has a strategy to provide individualised learning for pupils by 2035 which, when you think about it, is remarkable. In addition, each school has an education technologist who ensures that everyone is working towards the same goal and objective.
