Online Movie Editing Company to Provide Educators, Students and Faculty Across the Globe Free Access to its Application

PARIS, France – December 21, 2016 – Kizoa, an online movie editing application, today announced the launch of its international school program, Kizoa for Schools. According to a report published by Campaign for America’s Future and the National Education Association, most state legislatures have passed new state budgets that have a huge negative effect on public education, leading to extreme budget cuts in specialized programs, such as band and sports as well as academic offerings in science, foreign language, technology, and advanced placement subjects. In an effort to make resources for students and teachers more accessible and affordable, Kizoa is now offering students, teachers and faculty from around the world free lifetime access to its Premium Video membership.

“At Kizoa, we believe technology is an essential key to learning and should be accessible to everyone,” says Yanaï Guedj, CEO of Kizoa. “Our platform is an incredibly powerful tool, allowing both students and teachers to express creativity and imagination freely.”

Kizoa for Schools gives teachers, professors and students at all grade levels an easy and creative way to make movie presentations and collages. As a Kizoa for Schools member, anyone with an email address tied to an educational institution will receive a FREE lifetime subscription to its Premium Video membership (valued at $29.99), and will have access to: 10 GB in storage space, be able to download movies in standard resolution of 10 minutes or less, share projects via social media, as well as embed onto websites and blogs. Based on the number of educational emails currently registered with Kizoa, the tech company expects to donate upward of $2 million in services towards the cause of affordable technology in schools.

“It’s been over twenty years since I’ve graduated, and the cost of education has increased tremendously,” explains Guedj. “Something so valuable, like one’s education, should be free. Kizoa for Schools is our contribution towards this mission.”

With premium access, Kizoa for Schools members can leverage the technology for all of their movie-making needs. Project creativity is endless, but can include:

  • Honoring a student or teacher of the month
  • Enhancing school projects by creating an easy-to-share, multi-media project
  • Classroom activity slideshows
  • End-of-the-year highlights
  • Sport highlight reels
  • Capturing school and university milestones
  • Shareable, multi-media photo albums and yearbooks

Kizoa is one of the only platforms that give users complete control of their creations. With over 2000 features, members have a wide variety of effects, movie and collage templates, animations, and music for any occasion to incorporate in their projects.

When it comes to learning about STEM fields – science, technology, engineering and math – it’s all about hands-on activities. Just ask students at Audubon Elementary School in Pennsylvania’s Methacton School District. Some days they are engineers learning to build the tallest tower. Or they might be writing computer code on a visit to the school library.  Or learning to use a 3D printer that seems like something out of the latest Star Wars movie. Except it’s not a movie.
