  2. 2. I have been using videos of all kinds in my EFL classes for a few years now and I find the experience incredibly rewarding and constructive for a variety of reasons. The theoretical background and pedagogy underlying fair use and effective applications of the moving image in learning is well-known to most teachers who might take the time to have a look at or even make use of the resources recommended in these slides. Besides functioning as a personal repository of favorite websites, it’s the sharing that counts and the feeling of deep gratitude that has been instilled in me by all these amazing people around the world: educators, film makers, tech savants, script writers, artists of all kinds and many more, who have put their minds and hearts into the hard task of making this world a better place. Thank you! ANDRONIKI NISTIKAKI
