Biography: Bruce Phillips

Bruce Phillips

Recommended Posts

My name is Bruce Phillips and I work as an education officer for ARKive http://www.arkive.org/. ARKive is the world’s centralised library of films and photographs of U.K. and the world's endangered species – freely accessible to all online for private research and internal educational purposes. Hailed as the digital Noah’s Ark, it has won numerous education and communication awards since its launch by Sir David Attenborough in 2003. I was previously a science teacher in a U.K. comprehensive school and have worked in Belize and China.

The main ARKive website is designed for a variety of users (11 years old and upwards). Its content consists of one of the largest collection of wildlife and environmental films and images from around the world that can be viewed for free, and is relevant to a wide range of science and geography subjects in primary or secondary schools and up to university standard (all can be downloaded free of charge).

Planet ARKive http://www.planetarkive.org/home.html is for children aged 7-11, and designed to make life science learning and environmental education a widely enjoyable experience. It fits in especially well with learning about living things in their environment, the habitats, countries and ecosystems of the world. Again it is free and fun to use.

ARKive Education (http://www.arkiveeducation.org/) is for teachers and other educators – and offers downloadable briefings, lesson plans and project ideas to support curriculum learning targets. It too is free to use.
