Film stimulates children’s understanding of diverse topics, language, visual storytelling and digital skills – even at a very young age. BØRNEBIFFEN I DAGTILBUD, a streaming site and creative tool, features films and activities for children aged 3-6 and their educators in kindergartens. The activities relate to the learning curriculum, the national educational plans, which in Denmark consists of six themes: Personal Development; Social Development; Communication and Language; Body, Senses and Movement; Nature, Outdoor and Science; Culture, Aesthetics and Community.
It is a platform for collaboration, play and experience through film, images and sound. The website and the app are simple to use and can seamlessly be inserted into the busy day-to-day life in institutions. The website can be found at Danish Film Institutes Website, and the app for Ipads is available at the App Store – both are free to use through an institution login.
BØRNEBIFFEN I DAGTILBUD features creative tools and more than 400 short films, Danish and international. Many of the films come with suggestions for activities. The educational aim is to support the youngest children in becoming active, curious and critical users and creators of film and media. Read more here.
