Tune into English
A website full of music clips, videos and songs that can be sung along by everyone, ideal for learning English.
"Songs help make the learning of new words and structures more natural and long lasting. By singing along, students are naturally acquiring correct pronunciation. Many of the songs on this site highlight and exploit different Grammar points, as well as Vocabulary. Students’ awareness of rhyming words is also heightened in many of the activities. The activities on this site can be adapted to any level, and are real. They are very easy to find – if the teacher doesn’t have a copy of the students’ favourite songs, the students will almost certainly have one."
The site contains lots of helpful tools like phonetic charts, games and explanations.

Pocket Anatomy (the Interactive Human Body), created in 2009 by eMedia, Ireland (http://www.emedia.ie/v2), is a range of medical education software applications to assist medical students, healthcare professionals, and the general public in visualising the complexities of the human body in a novel format. The first two products in this suite of medical education resources include “Pocket Heart” and “Pocket Body”.
Originally created to help anatomy and biology students study and understand the inner workings of the human body in a more fun and engaging way, these Pocket Anatomy learning tools are also popular amongst doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals as communications aids when meeting and explaining diagnoses and conditions to patients and their families.
Pocket Heart is a novel way to visualize how the human heart works, in 3D. Whether you’re a student needing to learn, understand and memorize all of the anatomical features and functions of the heart, or a health care professional looking for a new way of communicating a diagnosis or procedure to a patient, colleague or trainee, Pocket Heart’s unique 3D interface can facilitate this.
Pocket Body is a fully searchable interactive atlas of the human anatomy, which allows the busy medical and nursing student or allied health care professional to visualise the human musculoskeletal system through the use of interactive high definition illustrations of the human body. This software features a fully anatomically accurate human character with nine layers of musculoskeletal content, enabling the user to navigate from the skin layer through the superficial to deep musculature, and on through to ligaments and the skeleton. In each layer, structures are pinned for identification and associated with each pin is additional concise relevant information including clinical notes. All of the information is presented in an interactive, mobile and accessible format which takes full use of the features of the device on which the app runs (iPhone, iPad or iTouch). This is a marked contrast with the two-dimensional (2D) printed pictures and diagrams commonly used in the teaching of advanced human anatomy today. Additional features allow the user to make learning notes as they progress through the learning content, and also utilize the built-in quizzes as a self-test capability to assist in their learning and exam preparation.

War on Waste
Green Schools 'War on Waste' is a light-hearted short video about environment and recycling, created in 2010 by young pupils from primary school St Francis School, Priorswood, Dublin in collaboration with NearTV, Near Media Co-operative (Ireland). The pupils taking part in the video explain the importance of recycling and what type of waste can go into the different recycling bins used in Ireland. Because the Dublin City Council decided to put recycling bins into a local Travellers site for the first time (Travellers are an indigenous minority group in Ireland), pupils of the school that were also Travellers were involved in the making of this video to make them aware of the importance of these recycling bins.
The video was shown as part of lessons on the environment and recycling. As this was a community project with a particular emphasis on encouraging young people and their parents to recycle, a viewing was arranged in the school for everyone to watch the video. Near TV believes, that by creating a sense of occasion for the young people and their parents, they would see the importance in recycling and bring with them this new knowledge into their homes and daily life.
