About Elokuvalisenssi

Make Working More Fluent and Efficient with Elokuvalisenssi

Have you used the film as a teaching tool? In addition to the fact that films can be used to reward students for a well-run school day, they are an excellent way to broaden young people’s world view and deepen the subjects they are taught. In many cases, even films intended for entertainment can be found in common with the themes running through the curriculum, which makes them useful when teaching school subjects. Elokuvalisenssi offers public performance permits (Vuosilupa and Kertalupa), and the Elokuvalisenssi movie service makes it easier to choose a film, while also offering high-quality learning and discussion materials.

For many young people, historical films can be a natural way to learn about past times. Things characteristic of the past era, such as clothing and living environment, are revealed to viewers in a very effective way through visual storytelling. Especially more serious topics can be easier for growing children to handle through the story told by the film.

Living with the human destinies told in the film gives students useful tools for dealing with their own life experiences as well. Elokuvalisenssi’s online service has been developed to facilitate the use of film as a teaching tool. The service gathers together a huge amount of information about films. Different learning themes and materials are supporting cinematic teaching, which facilitates and speeds up teaching planning.

The use of the service is based on the use of various search functions, which makes choosing the wished material smooth and fast. You can search for a film with learning materials that are suitable for the lesson and the theme being taught using a theme word, subject or educational level search.
