Novel student-centered inquiry-based studying ideas are offered in the end of each video for investigating and possibly solving these issues. The first videos will be published in November 2017. They are funded by Magnus Ehrnrooth foundation.

The teacher-guides for RootEd-videos are sold now in Finnish in Holvi-webstore. Teacher-guides for RootEd videos support the teachers before and after showing the videos in a classroom. They involve ideas how to playfully introduce the wicked topics and what kind of homework activities could be given for the students.
