Edita is revolutionizing how people learn at all ages.
One link in the creation of the highly praised Finnish level of education has been Edita Publishing Ltd, a 160 year-old pioneer of publishing and information services. Now, Edita is revolutionizing how people learn at all ages by combining its strong know-how in a variety of fields of education, with digitalization. The result is smart learning that helps us all to cope, even with the working life of tomorrow.
In smart learning, the core idea is that every student – whether still at school or already at work – gets the information most relevant to them. The information that is most suitable for his or her own starting point, in which the student’s needs and background are taken into consideration.
“By means of digitalization, information can be rationed out in suitable pieces in order to maximize the impact of learning. It has been proven that the greater part of learning takes place outside of formal learning, e.g. at work and from colleagues. We also support social learning and problem-solving experiences,” Managing Director Päivi Hietanen clarifies.

“We reduce skill shortfalls, especially in education, legal matters, and various organizations. In the educational field we participate in making a culture change, where modern pedagogy enables deep learning with efficiently managed education. In legal matters, we offer personalized information services for experts in order to enable them to create additional value with their skills,” Hietanen continues.
The company has provided digital training, e.g. in competition law, for an international organization with 1 200 employees. In October, Edita was rewarded with a BELMA award for its publication ‘Business Bites’, which is a digital learning resource for students in international business and administration. Edita cooperates internationally with New Pedagogies for Deep Learning. Maija-Liisa Saksa
