was @sweden 2016-10-10 to 2016-10-17

Hi, I’m Karin Nygårds (@grishund). I spend most of my time on the internet. When I’m not online, I try to teach kids and teachers about the digital world. So, I’m a teacher, a writer and a level 26 Pokémon player.

I will spend my week as curator of @sweden tweeting about the future of education as I see it. You can read more about me on karinnygards.se.

@sweden Oct. 17, 2016, 7:27 a.m.

@DahlinElizabeth After this week I will try to tweet more in English.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 10:59 p.m.

I'll be back at my usual account @grishund tomorrow. Bye bye and take care 👋

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 10:58 p.m.

In case I oversleep tomorrow, and wake up without access to this account I say bye and thank you for this week.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:53 p.m.

@mzhummina You totally can't live without tea, can you?

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:38 p.m.

@BuddaPSL it's getting more and more popular here. Love it!

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:37 p.m.

@RevPLane I think he would consider himself realistic. But I'll let him do his presentation by himself. That list was not from him!

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:36 p.m.

@Nissvik Thanks. I blocked like a hundred or so. No need to listening to the evil voices. So many nice people here.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:34 p.m.

So here we go. Next week you'll be talking to mr @svenskprepper

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:32 p.m.

@djhayes2 Loved the questions. Great kind of interaction. 👌

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:23 p.m.

If you understand Swedish, this is a clue about next week's curator. https://t.co/fEsF7AaeLL

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:20 p.m.

@djhayes2 I actually don't know. I got the question two weeks ahead. Don't know if it's normal.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:19 p.m.

@MarcelinNZ I know! I've been to Sydney and the opera house. AND I used to work in a tiles shop.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:18 p.m.

@digitalmaverick Sure, I'm @grishund normally. Mostly tweet in Swedish though. Perhaps I ought to change that :)

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:16 p.m.

I spent a surprisingly amount of time tweeting about food.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:16 p.m.

I didn't spend as much time as I intended to talk about education.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:15 p.m.

I had a lot of fun reading the theories around my looks and my political identify. I learned that I look like a SJW -also new to me.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:14 p.m.

I've also learned that being boring is a quite easy way to stay out of the line of fire.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:13 p.m.

I've learned how many groups identify themselves through avatars and emojis. That was very useful knowledge.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:12 p.m.

I've had a fun week as @sweden. It's been interesting in many ways.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:10 p.m.

This week went quickly. It's soon time for me to reveal next week's curator. It will be someone completely different from me!

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:02 p.m.

@torkju naah-not really the same feeling :)

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9:02 p.m.

Is it possible to program love? Watch Lydia program a heart for a teacher that moved away. https://t.co/bUV9ukVF4g

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 9 p.m.

@BuddaPSL I sold mine three years ago. Calculated it would be cheaper to use carpool and taxi. It is. But I miss owning a car.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 7:31 p.m.

@BuddaPSL It's mostly a matter of parking space. It's so expensive.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 7:25 p.m.

I just learned on the sports news that Sweden also are the world champions in tug-of-war. Little did I know! https://t.co/DxYx2m3rd7

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 7:09 p.m.

I really love fast cars and dream about one day buying a sports car.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 7:07 p.m.

Sweden's first world champion in rally cross. Congratulations Mattias Ekström! https://t.co/cxttf2j9ch

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:39 p.m.

@RemnantWolfy My main reason for coding in school is to teach the kids how the digital world works.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:37 p.m.

@RemnantWolfy I think the English curriculum is too complicated from a young age, but that's my thought and not a fact.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:36 p.m.

@RemnantWolfy There's still not so much independent research done, since it's still early. I'm interested in knowing the right level.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:23 p.m.

I share birthday with the world's oldest wombat. Wow. Mind blowing. https://t.co/kbPHMDDD7r

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:21 p.m.

@ormiga well, I have to proven my importance while I have this account 😆

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:20 p.m.

@RemnantWolfy I also believe we need to look at what effect the methods have on the students. What do they actually learn?

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:19 p.m.

@RemnantWolfy By sharing good examples from schools who are ahead. Make sure The know how is spread between schools.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:14 p.m.

The topic is "Smart leadership and US-Swedish approaches to solving global challenges in gender equity and inclusion"

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:13 p.m.

The panel includes among others, our minister of higher education and research and the president of Barnard College, Debora Spar.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:11 p.m.

I'm very much looking forward to the panel discussion on Tuesday, at the US ambassador's residence.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:09 p.m.

I have interesting meetings planned. One about the strategy for implementing coding in schools the best way.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:07 p.m.

It's gonna take a lot of tea to keep me awake. I always fall asleep while reading.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:06 p.m.

This coming week my work is mostly about reading different reports and also proofreading of the book I'm editing.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 6:02 p.m.

Laziest Sunday in months. Haven't even tweeted that much.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 2:17 p.m.

@helioloureiro Yeah! I think I'll enjoy the royal lifestyle 👑

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 1:39 p.m.

@helioloureiro the kingdom of Sweden thank you for the birthday wishes.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 1:39 p.m.

@Syntium It's my birthday today but I started celebrating yesterday. I only turn 41 once.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 12:43 p.m.

@alexjayling I drink tea and that's not even my biggest cup.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 12:20 p.m.

@bumpuddle I'm trying but it's a hard habit to break.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 12:16 p.m.

The headline says "a punk rocker in the school world". It refers to the first prize I was awarded for my work to reform Swedish education.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 12:13 p.m.

The local newspaper in Dalarna, where I'm from, write about me and my TV-program. https://t.co/J1wx963Geu

Roses on my birthday. Not every year. https://t.co/fJ74TLDQC8

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 10:45 a.m.

Amazing place this Häringe slott. https://t.co/hlaDyHTwbI

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 10:15 a.m.

@xcelerationlabs Thank you very much Mitch! However I didn't tweet that much about edu as I intended.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 10:05 a.m.

@Woodinhyo Indeed! I once met a moose out in the wild. Very scary.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 8:32 a.m.

@Woodinhyo It's actually a moose. Like twice the size of a reindeer.

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 4:21 a.m.

@hanner_ch Imagine if a comedian of today would start to reuse old jokes. That could be interesting 🤔

@sweden Oct. 16, 2016, 4:17 a.m.

That was really interesting. The joke about "season for babies" suddenly makes sense. Thanks for the input… https://t.co/AtHl8BJvuk

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 11:53 p.m.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 11:12 p.m.

@MartinMay678 Ja, verkligen. En särdeles fin vecka har jag haft.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 10:18 p.m.

@JanneFantastic Tycker jag inte är så långt därifrån med mina konstiga pizzor och uppstoppade djur :)

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 9:45 p.m.

Filet of deer with lingonberry sauce and a potato cake with cheese from Västerbotten. https://t.co/HMJhUewpY3

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 7:32 p.m.

@ElinBjorkholm Ingen larmknapp i närheten. Sitter riktigt lågt ner den här. Lite konstigt.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 7:17 p.m.

Why is there a second TP-holder down by the floor? I've tried to come up with a reasonable explanation but failed. https://t.co/cdTafi7Br0

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 6:23 p.m.

@BuddaPSL Welcome to the tea side. We have scones. And cupcakes. @Caspita_1989

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 6:22 p.m.

@Christine_Wands True. The US is not very tea friendly either.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 5:49 p.m.

@fleijerstam Japp! Perfekt en grå oktoberhelg.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 5:32 p.m.

@Caspita_1989 yep! It's not easy to be a non-coffee person in Sweden.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 5:15 p.m.

@village_wale yep. Those vikings liked to write on stones. Like twitter for the Vikings.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:55 p.m.

The first time my kid saw a rune stone she asked how to start Netflix on it 😂 (she was 3 ys)

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:53 p.m.

A stone with runes from the Vikings. https://t.co/Iua6x0exLF

@GeCarlTillPutin nä, bara kunglig rådgivare.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:49 p.m.

@ElysiaHeights The kingdom of Sweden thank you for the birthday wishes. 👑

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:45 p.m.

The queen was offended by the "lower class" king's proposal. A simple "no" wasn't enough. No, she had to burn him to death.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:42 p.m.

In year 1006 the prince Olav came here to take revenge on the queen Storåda who had killed his father when he asked her to marry him.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:39 p.m.

Häringe slott were built in the 17th century but it seems that the place has interesting history going back to the Vikings.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:35 p.m.

@i_anic Thank you! It will be a nice and quiet evening with my family.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:34 p.m.

@AfS_Vern @allt4sverige One of my favorite places to go for the weekend.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:31 p.m.

@Lechuga_Violeta Thank you! It's really relaxing.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 4:14 p.m.

Enjoying the weekend at Häringe slott with my mother. https://t.co/sv0KXMB0SJ

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 1:29 p.m.

@paxxman Har ju förmånen att få jobba med vår fine prins, så jag vet att det är ett trevligt sällskap på riktigt. :)

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, noon

@Gaby_Chamorro well, we do eat a lot of cold food for Christmas but not only :)

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 11:49 a.m.

@helioloureiro Thanks! 😁 You've got an eye for details.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 10:26 a.m.

Just one more picture. Found my sketches for the activities in the program. It's kind of amazing how my thoughts no… https://t.co/vfWfa12KnK

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 10:23 a.m.

Enough photo spamming. Back to work!

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 10:20 a.m.

@cmbsweden I have like a hundred of them. Excellent to find stuff easily.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 10:18 a.m.

@Meesamstraat That's the program I use for illustrations. My coworkers use it so it's easy to share files.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 10:16 a.m.

Here's where I keep most of my robots. Most of the stuff where used in the TV-program as props 😁 https://t.co/lwM3t2Le02

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 10:08 a.m.

@RuFfRyDaH The Swedish word "lagom" is not my kind of word.

Working on portraits for my next book. This is me and my partner in crime @Terejs https://t.co/up6uV2b6K8

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 9:59 a.m.

This is my "office". I really only use it when I do illustrations in PS. https://t.co/Oa1jjxXfVP

@ormiga Perhaps they thought 8 where more "digital" since it fits in a byte?

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 9:40 a.m.

This is my company this morning. https://t.co/jhAeWmH7XP

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 9:37 a.m.

@ormiga Now that would be TWO handfuls

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 9:35 a.m.

It's rewarding to be part of the Horizon Nordic Expert Panel for @NMCorg I learn so much.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 8:16 a.m.

Saturday morning. I'm kicking off with starting to read the hundreds of articles assigned to me to be able to predict future of education.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 8:04 a.m.

@TL_peanuts My 3rd is on its way now. 1st and 3rd are for teachers. I intend to write more children's books about programming and internet.

@sweden Oct. 15, 2016, 1:13 a.m.

@MartinMay678 Wow! Thank you! That Karl-trip was quite unforgettable :)

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 10:24 p.m.

@davidssilverman Just wanted to make sure there were no misunderstandings 😆

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 10:20 p.m.

@davidssilverman It's not me in the picture!

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 10:13 p.m.

@daveylittle one person stabbed by a clown with a knife

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 10:06 p.m.

This clown thing? We have clowns attacking people here in Sweden. I've never liked clowns.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 8:23 p.m.

@hpp4559 I was holding a moose steak but decided to go for a simpler meal. Chanterelles on knäckebröd. 👌

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 7:13 p.m.

@danmartyr For the most part people are friendly as it seems. I think we can create a better community together.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 7:12 p.m.

@danmartyr My daughter is 6. I think a lot of it also. Hopefully we'll find better ways to socialize online.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:57 p.m.

@danmartyr I learned to identify certain groups from avatars. That helped me to block en masse. The subgroups of all the worst.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:56 p.m.

@danmartyr It seems to bring out all the worst of people.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:55 p.m.

@djhayes2 Ah! But of course! How could I not get that? My daughter used to watch Sofia the First. Never thought of the name like that 😀

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:49 p.m.

@djhayes2 sorry, I didn't get that.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:36 p.m.

.@danmartyr Monday was quite awful, but after some major blocking I've very much enjoyed my week so far.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:33 p.m.

@danmartyr It's been really interesting. I've learned a lot. Especially how efficient it is to block and not answer to hate or harassment.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:31 p.m.

The no 1 reason why children are molested online is the lack of an adult to talk to. We need to keep the children's confidence.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:27 p.m.

The children said that one reason not to talk to parents is that they are afraid the parents will take their phone away if there's problem.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:24 p.m.

They want their parents to understand their life on the internet. If something bad happens, don't blame the technology, blame the people.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:21 p.m.

I found it very rewarding to listen to the young people and their thoughts. They have a lot to teach us if we're open to learn.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:20 p.m.

The foundation arranged a symposium where 50 children were invited to give us their views on how adults should talk… https://t.co/4iFVEQVyKT

My role is to give the board advice on what to do and to give input on what's going on in schools.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:11 p.m.

The foundation will act to prevent cyber bullying by supporting people and NGO:s who work for this case.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 6:08 p.m.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 4:52 p.m.

@Bjartadurna see further down in thread

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 3:35 p.m.

I don't know a thing about making TV. I couldn't control the process I didn't know if it would work. So glad that kids seem to like it.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 3:34 p.m.

Writing books is one thing. Then I can control everything. I know writing. I know my subject. Not so difficult.

@sweden Oct. 14, 2016, 3:32 p.m.

One of the biggest newspapers gave me a rave review today. So proud and happy I must brag about it. I've been nervous for months.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 7:17 p.m.

@insanelygreat I think it's how it used to be done. I guess it must be cheaper this way or something.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 7:01 p.m.

@bankzzzgtr Yes, that's correct. Very impressive that they even came up with the idea.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 6:59 p.m.

@EverywhereMans I teach programming and internet related matters.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 6:49 p.m.

This house weighs 200 tons and is 10 meters. It was built in 1911 and is considered to be of special importance to our cultural heritage.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 6:48 p.m.

The houses will be situated 7 kilometers away in a place called Koskullskulle.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 6:47 p.m.

Since the mine in Malmberget is endangering the houses, it was decided to move the whole village.

@ErenJob I've worked with children with autism. I find it very rewarding.

@ccadenamm My kid always asks "is it burned?" before eating my food.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 6:30 p.m.

@lmashell I've actually ruined one of those 😆

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 6:29 p.m.

@mostportem That's an interesting way to see it :)

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 6:07 p.m.

Ok. Cooking is not my best feature. This was supposed to be rice for dinner. https://t.co/a0XJzRRwcN

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 5:12 p.m.

So, it's 5 pm and my kid is home from school. No more tweeting from me. See ya tomorrow!

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 4:42 p.m.

@parallelzeno I guess it depends upon what you wish for :)

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 4:26 p.m.

@Fondacey It looks like they have problems with keeping the teachers healthy and happy. More students per teacher and less kids in preschool

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 3:46 p.m.

@Fondacey Really? Did Sollentuna drop that far? I wonder why. I have to read more about it. @tired0ne

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 3:29 p.m.

@pm_ohlson2 We've actually come a long way since the mission started 3ys ago. We'll soon have programming in national curriculum from y1.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 2:27 p.m.

@hanifbali To attend school is called a duty but the 6890 hours are called a guaranteed right by Skolverket. @tonyingesson @bankzzzgtr

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 2:17 p.m.

@DigitalLinnea I think we all need to learn how to handle the phones. Not just by locking them in. @daveylittle @bankzzzgtr

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 2:16 p.m.

@DigitalLinnea I've had more problems with "cellphone day care" than with the phones in class. @daveylittle @bankzzzgtr

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 2:15 p.m.

.@DigitalLinnea I haven't had any problems with phones in class actually. @daveylittle @bankzzzgtr

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:58 p.m.

@alexgabriel_i And in some way it actually is. What we teach our kids is important for the nation. Just don't like the way it's expressed.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:56 p.m.

.@daveylittle It was easier working with immigrant kids than Swedish middle class kids. @bankzzzgtr

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:55 p.m.

.@daveylittle Discipline is one of the most difficult issues I have to conquer as a teacher. @bankzzzgtr

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:37 p.m.

@aka_Supergirl really? How interesting. I love my job though and I don't consider myself underpaid at all. Salaries varies a lot in Sweden.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:35 p.m.

.@bankzzzgtr I've never had more than 25, but I think up to 30 is considered normal.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:14 p.m.

So, my colleagues at @UR_Pedagogerna are working hard to put focus on great teachers. ur_pedagogernas foto https://t.co/i3OajxIDsc

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:11 p.m.

@grubbelsmurf yes! Nu kommer sanningen fram liksom.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:10 p.m.

@JonathanRL Thanks! The kids seem to like it though. I'm bored just by looking at it.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:08 p.m.

It says "Go poop yourself mama" -Well behaved child. 😆

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 1:07 p.m.

My kid has just learned to write. This is the precious note she left me yesterday https://t.co/XI2o3BZDPY

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:54 p.m.

@DeathStarDances The annoying truth is that the kids actually like it. Most of them anyway.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:53 p.m.

@Hookawoolly Most of them love work books. I think it's because it doesn't require that much thinking. Creativity demands more energy.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:48 p.m.

@gargunzola now you can learn duck = anka and monkey = apa Might be useful one day :)

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:44 p.m.

I was sub teaching in 1st grade laT Friday. I love teaching how to read and write, but this is actually quite borin… https://t.co/eSwrofToNp

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:40 p.m.

RT @maxentin: @sweden Me too. Here's what I was told by American grand-inlaws some years ago. I had a hard time coming up with a comeback,…

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:20 p.m.

I was in Egypt to talk about my project about "hacking the curriculum" to include coding and internet knowledge in ordinary subjects.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:15 p.m.

@Aetles I aim to reclaim the respect :)

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:15 p.m.

@MissLaurenK You don't get that kind of feedback in any other job.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:14 p.m.

@denisjelec and still, I love my job very much.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:13 p.m.

When I was in Egypt last year, I was told that what's taught in schools is considered national security.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:12 p.m.

@gargunzola I've once been a sub.teacher in a small school outside of Grahamstown in South Africa :) @MissLaurenK

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:09 p.m.

.@MissLaurenK Perhaps it's a global thing. Anyway, I love my job. It's the best I can think of.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:06 p.m.

@chellofagirl Have you tried the pomodoro technique? Set the alarm for 25 minutes. Study intensely and then rest. https://t.co/pbBopDIUbm

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 12:02 p.m.

@denisjelec really? That's sad to hear.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, noon

@bankzzzgtr yes, that's a big part of the job.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:47 a.m.

I find it very strange. Teachers shape the future, every day. We can make a difference, every day.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:45 a.m.

To be a teacher is not considered very prestigious in Sweden. Especially not primary teacher, like me.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:43 a.m.

.@LeeEriksson @EvoEcoAmy It's the responsibility that makes it so great. I love the impact. To be the good change in kids' lives.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:42 a.m.

@chellofagirl How can I help you? Give me some more input. Perhaps I can sort it out?

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:40 a.m.

@EvoEcoAmy @LeeEriksson it's a challenge. Being a teacher is such a responsibility.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:37 a.m.

@Claire_Leivers Thank you! I intend to be very boring this week :)

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:34 a.m.

@TracyVanity @LeeEriksson @EvoEcoAmy Yes, that would be the main reason. But also some kind of control from the state.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:25 a.m.

.@LeeEriksson @EvoEcoAmy That's correct. Homeschooling is not allowed in Sweden.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:22 a.m.

.@bankzzzgtr It varies a lot, depending on ages but also on the separate schools. In total every child has the right to 6890 hours in 9 ys.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:08 a.m.

.@MartinMay678 yes, Karin is actually another name for teacher 😁

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:06 a.m.

In Sweden kids can start förskoleklass when they are 6, but it's not compulsory. Not until first grade.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 11:04 a.m.

So, this morning I got the chance to help out in my kid's class. She's in preschool "förskoleklass", year 0.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 10:56 a.m.

@JimmyHedman Jag tänkte vara supertråkig så att jag skakar av mig lite troll. Får se hur det går.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 10:52 a.m.

.@EurovisionOca I intend to talk a lot about Swedish education, since it's my main interest.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 10:51 a.m.

.@josecarlosliria De que parte? Estuve tres meses en Caceres estudiando en 1998 :)

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 10:48 a.m.

.@kreitcher I used to teach Swedish but nowadays I mostly teach programming and knowledge about the internet.

@sweden Oct. 10, 2016, 9:51 a.m.

Right now I'm at my kid's school, enjoying a brisk October morning. https://t.co/Cpaedhp63a
