Finland is the highest performing education system in the world, and in the Spring of 2010, Tony was invited by the Finland National Board of Education to share his ideas on the new skills all students need today. Bob Compton, executive producer of the highly acclaimed education documentary, “2 Million Minutes,” sent a film crew with Tony and shadowed him as he consulted to senior officials, visited schools and teacher training programs, and talked to teachers, parents, and students. The resulting 60 minute video, “The Finnish Phenomenon: Inside The World’s Most Surprising School System,” had its world premiere on March 24 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The New York Times journalist, Thomas Friedman, and other distinguished panelists discussed the video after its showing. The DVD also contains bonus material, including a video of a keynote Tony gave at the Asia Society conference in 2009. You can view the trailer here, and you can buy a copy of the video here.
