WATCH AND READ A FEW USER EXPERIENCES OF SKILLOON BELOW.

Seija Kiiskinen, Student Counsellor, The English School, Finland

At the English School in Helsinki, Skilloon ws tested in January 2018. The experiences have been good. The compulsory course OP2 for high-school students includes a two day long "job shadowing" period both during the first and second year of studies. This year course named "Get Redy for Work" on Skilloon was given as an alternative for completing these two "job shadowing" days, in which students completed exercises related to working life skills and entrepreneurship. Students participated with excitement in this opportunity. From the perspective of a student counsellor, creating the course was easy, and the program itself was very easy to use.

Graduating senior Riku Vidqvist reflected, that the exercises encouraged to stop and gave new points of view in preparing for the matriculation examination. "I had to really think and work hard" - Vidqvist commented. The principal of High School of Lieto, Jyrki Saarnia, thanked Skilloon for being in line with the needs and atmosphere of the present day. According to the new curriculum, the school must be constantly evaluated, and the statistics in Skilloon provide an excellent tool for this.
