What type of external microphone (Oly M5.III)

I don't do video much but sometimes my daughter has a school project; and it's nice to have nice sound.

My M5.III has an external mic input.

I found out there are two types of microphones: one with a battery and one without.

Which one do I need? Will both work?  If both work, then why do microphones with a battery exist?

So many questions...
