EdVisto Road Show visited Tapiola High School in the city of Espoo October the 26th 2016. Co-operation with the Tapiola High School was originally started through the KYKY project that aimed at the co-development of EdTech companies and the city of Espoo. In the KYKY project, education companies and schools develop and experiment with new products and practices that promote new learning.
As a venue for the video tour in Tapiola High School was a lobby style space, where students gather for example between their classes to spend time. The Road Show was arranged so that the invited teachers visited the lobby with their student group at agreed times. Teacher Pia Liimatainen was responsible for organizing the tour at the school.
Three teacher’s groups participated in the event: mother tongue, English and French language student groups. The students had created user accounts in EdVisto beforehand so they were able to start planning and creating their video stories immediately in small groups. EdVisto’s team followed the progress of the work and guided the students when needed. After the event for students, a separate workshop was held for teachers to use EdVisto.
A road show on the Tapiola high school was documented in a joint video about the KYKY projects in Espoo. Joni AlWindi, the CEO of EdVisto, was interviewed in the video about how the co-operation between the city of Espoo and the company supports and utilizes each other.
