Abstract

ViLLE is an exercise-based digital learning platform designed and implemented at University of Turku. The digital learning path in ViLLE is a pedagogic methodology of utilizing educational technology effectively in classroom: with learning path, one mathematics, language or programming lesson in a week is transformed into digital learning experience. The learning path in ViLLE is already used in one third of Finnish schools. In this article, we present the results of surveying teachers' perceptions about the usage of learning path, it's pedagogic value and their ideas of improving the environment and the learning experience. 280 teachers answered to the survey. Majority of the teachers were very happy with the environment and more than 95 % of them were willing to use it in the future as well. Still, some critique and suggestions for improvement were also presented. In addition to detailed analysis of the results, we also present possible changes into pedagogy based on these suggestions.
