EdVisto Present at International Seminar

EdVisto was invited by Laurea University of Applied Sciences to take part in the closing seminar of its Lifelong Learning-program, the AHEAD-project, on September 9, 2015. The seminar topic was “Co-Creating Learning Adventures into the Digital World” and the audience was 55+ aged seniors, who have been trained to make travel stories with tablets.

Johanna Penttilä from Helsinki University’s CICERO Learning Network and Anne Kuokkanen from EdVisto spoke about experiences from young people as creators of digital stories, while presenting the latest updates of the video storytelling platform EdVisto. The topic of their presentation was  What could we learn from children as digital storytellers?”

An opportunity to learn more about the platform was offered in the afternoon Learning Cafe, where also EdVisto’s CEO Joni AlWindi was present.

EdVisto Presented to Taiwanese Delegation

The new video service was presented to a Taiwanese delegation at the University of Helsinki at an event organized by professor Hannele Niemi and CICERO Learning Network on August 21, 2015. Present were school directors and other education experts and decision makers from the city of Taipei. They were interested in learning about web-based teaching and learning tools originating in Finland. DiSEL21 was invited to the event to present its product EdVisto for the first time (at the time the new platform was still using the research name MoViE). The platform attracted much positive attention from the visitors.
