Movies stimulate emotions and prepare the viewer for reflection. Educational movies are valuable learning tools. That’s right! Learning can take place through watching movies!

They provide a context for stimulating open discussion, help teachers to improve self-awareness, and develop closer relationships with colleagues and students through emotions.Movies about education are an excellent resource for visual learners. They allow both teachers and students to see life from different perspectives, to understand new concepts and circumstances. Also, they make it easy to become familiar with a new language, a different cultural background, strong emotions, and a range of exceptional life situations. Cinematography dedicated to education captures the relationship between teachers and students and highlights that learning is crucial to our existence. Teachers are an endless source of motivation. The relationship established between them and the people they work with is open, trusting, and respectful. There are a lot of movies about education.
