Roses in the snow time!


Memorizing in Ainolanpuisto

These roses are now sleeping their winter sleep in Oulu, but I happened to be there when it was Summer and all these beautiful roses were flourishing in the rosary of Oulu City Park, Hupisaaret, Ainolanpuisto. The roses showed at their best.

It was not the first time I took photos of the roses there but I, as many other citizens of Oulu, are accustomed to visit Ainolanpuisto several times a year on every season.

Once upon a time I even did paint some paintings there of an imaginary Chinese lady! After that I have met several young student and Summer internees from China at the university of Oulu. My world has become more global. Has yours?

Three LET-students in a video

The video of three LET-students is made in a collaborative way, in a group of three LET-students. For me it was interesting, that we spoke English, even if we all are Finnish. We understood each other right away even if it was quite amusing to make recordings with iPad and the application Puppet Pals. I saw how the others draw fluently a line around a picture, made it bigger or smaller. It looked so easy, that I also could use it later on.

It is efficient to learn with other students since everyone is capable of doing many things and in collaborative learning everyone puts his/her part into a project. It is easy if everyone is accepted as an equal part in a collaborative group work. It is interesting to see how educational students from different countries have huge motivation, knowledge and talent to cope with self-regulation and others. That´s why they seem very balanced persons to be good educators at any level of education.
