A Finnish EdTech Startup New Nordic Schools is listed among the 50 most promising EdTech startups headquartered in the Nordic-Baltic region.
The need of the client was to build from the ground a web solution that would innovate Nordic Baccalaureate curriculum, enhance pedagogy, and develop a demanded tool not only for Finland but for schools worldwide. The project is running since September 2020 and has passed a number of releases and enhancements.
Now the New Nordic Schools Educational System is a powerful ecosystem for pre-k through grade 12 that empowers all students to explore their natural creativity, discover their true passions, and shape their own future.
It applies the renowned Finnish curriculum integrated with the best pedagogical practices from around the world to provide a personalized, purposeful, and locally relevant system.

ML recommendation engine proposes useful resources on the subject to students to improve their results.
“The objective of New Nordic Schools is to apply interactive methods of learning and promote students’ critical thinking with a non-standardized individual approach.
With the help of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, we’ll be figuring out how a student is studying and trying to improve this process for them with no need to ask questions to the teacher. For example, if the student finds some topic difficult, our system will manage to detect it and the ML recommendation engine will propose useful resources on the matter.
The teacher, in their turn, will enter our platform and have their lesson plans ready based on the year they teach and also receive a bunch of recommended materials.”
Excerpt from Helsinki Times article by Masnad Nehith, Technical Director at New Nordic Schools
You know, it’s not that easy to find specialists capable of implementing all AI and ML stuff. [...] Ironically enough, most only speak of them but don’t develop actual AI/ML-based solutions. That’s why I find Anadea’s work really impressive.

Plans for Future
Aside from the recommendation engine and ML feature for quizzes, the client is also thinking of adding an AI-driven module called e-portfolio.
It will graphically display students’ performance and progress and give them ideas on how to improve. The team will proceed to work on making ML features more sophisticated.
