ARKive - Discover the world's most endangered species Wildscreen's Arkive project was launched in 2003 and grew to become the world's biggest encyclopaedia of life on Earth. With the help of over 7,000 of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers and photographers, conservationists and scientists, Arkive.org featured multi-media fact-files for more than 16,000 endangered species. Freely accessible to everyone, over half a million people every month, from over 200 countries, used Arkive to learn and discover the wonders of the natural world. Since 2013 Wildscreen was unable to raise sufficient funds from trusts, foundations, corporates and individual donors to support the year-round costs of keeping Arkive online. Therefore, the charity had been using its reserves to keep the project online and was unable to fund any dedicated staff to maintain Arkive, let alone future-proof it, for over half a decade.

The 111 Greatest Acts of the Anglo-American Folk Music Tradition keywords: folk music, folk musician, folk musicians, folksongs, folksong, folk songs, folk artists, folksinger, folk singer, folk singers, folksingers, folk guitarist, folk guitarists I have seen several lists of this type posted on the Internet by well-meaning but sometimes agenda-driven individuals, so I thought I would take a shot at this myself, consulting some hard data along the way. I have a long and continuing interest in folk music going back to the early 1960s, when my older sister started buying Peter, Paul & Mary albums. I now purchase related material for the library collection at the University where I work (see notes , including further youtube.com links), and have recently opened a website featuring the lyrics of the fondly remembered topical and children's songs writer, . I also maintain a site called , and have a lot of experience in statistical analysis.
Authentic video in the classroom: Ireland II My second example of utilising authentic video in the EFL classroom is based on the same 50-minute travel video as my first. Of course, one can apply this to any video, but this time I will stick with Ireland. How I do it now will, however, differ from my last post because now I’ll concentrate on the language and vocabulary awareness in detail (but I wouldn’t use both methods on the same video in the same class, though). This approach is, however, associated with a lot of painstaking preparatory work for the teacher, because transcription of the video material needs to be done, at least for some of the clips. It takes about 1 hour to take down 5 minutes of video material, so one needs plenty of time to get a complete transcript. I rather enjoy transcribing videos and sound; oddly enough I experience the process as relaxing, especially if there is no deadline approaching.

Using digital video for cultural and linguistic awareness in ELT – an unofficial introduction Technology as such and technological skills in particular are not crucial for teachers to use digital video to enhance cultural and target language awareness in ELT. The main point is actually multitasking in the sense of the students using multiple senses simultaneously in order to absorb and handle the information given. Listening, reading, writing, speaking and even getting emotionally involved are at the centre of language learning. And whereas videos, be it fictional films, documentaries or newsflashes, have long been recognized as a useful tool in the language classroom, their place in the curriculum have been marginal, because so much information is given in such a short time span that it has been impossible to utilize them effectively in ELT.
