In this modern world, education has transcended the traditional method of teaching. Now technology has replaced the older methods of teaching. Technological development has welcomed the modern concept of utilising movies or video visuals as an effective way to educate. Besides, it continues to emerge with each passing day as textbooks have failed to entice the younger students. Thus, combining learning with a source of entertainment has become an ideal way of teaching students and getting the most out of them.
Using movies to teach can be challenging, but when used effectively, it can offer great benefits. Unlike texts or audio, movies enable students to learn visually and create interest in them. For instance, the movie ‘Gandhi’ has benefitted the students greatly as the movie allowed the students to understand the recreation of the life of Mahatma Gandhi. The visual clips provide a greater understanding of the era and time, along with the lifestyle of the historical figure, in a simple manner. Moreover, movies are not limited, unlike books. They go beyond the curriculum and pinpoint the topic which might not be part of the course. Though these might not be important, they allow students to go in-depth and explore more about them.
