What is Emppu-ope?
In Finland, we don’t call our teachers Miss or Sir. We call them ‘teacher’, or ‘ope’. When the coronavirus pandemic closed schools worldwide in the spring of 2020, a primary school teacher, Emppu, began to make YouTube videos to support her pupils’ learning. Emppu-ope was born out of necessity, but we have seen that using multimedia materials when teaching is motivating for students in everyday school life. FoxICon offers lesson packages that combine video, text, and physical activity. Contact us if you’re interested!
