Video storytelling as a learning method is strongly on its way to more and more schools. The use of video in subject-based learning is not a new methodology, but interactive use of video has not always been understood to be benefited from in a pedagogical way. Now, EdVisto enhances its video storytelling methodology even further, by taking a leap into the cinema world. With an inspiring film or documentary relating to the topic to be studied, students are given the opportunity to first create their own video productions and then show them at the Finnkino theatres, inviting other classes, the entire school or even the entire city to enjoy. With mostly empty theatre spaces during daytime, there’s enough space even for parents to come along.
The first school out to try this concept is Olari high school, which on October 10 started its first video storytelling project in the Finnkino theatres together with EdVisto.
“The film interested everyone and everyone learnt something new. Watching a film at the cinema truly inspired the course work in a nice way, in our case regarding the challenge of plastic in the environment. The event got in all ways the best grade from the students! Our work continues with the EdVisto platform and in November we hope to get back to Finnkino to show the students’ own productions.” – Kirsi Maria Vakkilainen, Chemistry Lecturer and Natural Sciences Coordinator, Olari High School
EdVisto now invites schools in Finnkino cities to get acquainted with the new ”EdVisto Films” concept.
