Finnish national author Aleksis Kivi encouraged people to become wiser and learn about life by going to schools and reading the books. This is said in the first Finnish novel “Seven brothers” from 1870 by Kivi.
Today, it is no longer enough for teachers and parents to enable children to learn basic literacy, by teaching letters, sentences and different types of text. You have to know how to distinguish truth from lies, direct information from manipulation and influence, a real social media profile from a fake profile, and be careful not to fall into the trap of online scammers. It is necessary to be able to understand how artificial intelligence affects literacy, our behavior and our activities. How can artificial intelligence be used in everyday life and at work?
It’s great that many teachers, writers, parents, teachers, early childhood educators manage to read books day after day and recommend literature to read for children and adults too! Thanks for the important work
It has been found that reading benefits people so much that it even relaxes, lowers blood pressure, develops imagination, teaches to read and opens up a whole world. Reading also positively helps mental health by relaxing the mind and body.
Happy Finnish Literature Day and Aleksis Kivi’s (1934-1872) birthday and World Mental Health Day
