In this thesis the author takes a first look into the advantages of using traditional English folk music in English lessons for ESL pupils. By integrating a song into the lesson the author allows the teacher to teach culture, vocabulary and grammar in the same lesson whilst also appealing to the pupils' creative skills. The first part of the thesis provides the reader with a theoretical background which supports the rest of the work. Later in this thesis the author explains his ideas and provides a theoretical foundation for those as well. The biggest part of the thesis is however made up of examples. In order to not only tell the reader his ideas the author also shows them by adding various examples of lessons, complete with lesson plans, teacher's notes and worksheets. Although this work is primarily based on the curriculum for Flemish ESL education, it is perfectly usable in other countries too.
Generally, art and science are considered to be two different cultures. The gap between these disciplines widened because the discrete space of specialized fields of study was more convenient than total knowledge. This thesis is a statement for new collaborations between artists and scientists and an integration of both disciplines into modern society. It answers questions regarding the manner in which artists can enrich research processes and art''s relevancy in connection with a technoscientific culture. This thesis provides an analysis of contemporary new media artworks that challenge our conception of the relationships between art, science and technology. It is intended to be a guide to art influenced by scientific and technological innovation that addresses research activity. The thesis also explicates historical aspects of art/science cross-fertilization and cites contemporary research centers, festivals and organizations as examples of how to promote collaborative multidisciplinary art-practice. Numerous pragmatists argue in favor of bridging the gap between art and science in order to achieve significant improvements for the prosperity of culture, academia and industry.
