The campaign encourages students to learn about the Finland100 theme in a fun way
The provider of video storytelling as a teaching and learning method, EdVisto, organizes a campaign, where students create video stories about “Finland 100” during the autumn. The theme of the campaign is “Finland through the eyes of students – 100 video stories about Finland”, and it is part of the centennial year program of Finland’s Independence. EdVisto offers video storytelling platform for free for subscribers to the campaign for the rest of the year and, in addition, the opportunity to win a license for the school for the whole year ahead.
HELSINKI, September the 15th, 2017 – EdVisto launches a three-month Finland 100 campaign for schools. The goal of the campaign is that students from upper and lower secondary schools from 100 schools around Finland plan, film and edit educational videos of their chosen theme. The topics of video stories may be for example about the Finnish history, present stage or future. As well, themes can be related to the “together” theme or the meaning of communality. The campaign culminates near the Independence Day, when the best schools are rewarded with EdVisto’s one-year licenses.
EdVisto wants to be involved in representing the world-famous Finnish competence in education. The campaign aims to encourage teachers and students to try out a new video storytelling methodology in learning. This way the teachers and students get a chance to explore Finland’s jubilee year in a fun way and learn about the related phenomena through video stories. During the project, valuable video material will be created on how 100 years old Finland is seen through the eyes of present-day students.
