Half of the planet's 7000 languages are now in danger of extinction: a drastic change in humanity's intellectual history. The basis of human knowledge is enduring, and during 99% of the our history, it was transmitted by word of mouth. Yet, it is fragile. It is largely not written, and vulnerable to be forgotten. Digital technologies can help document and preserve this knowledge found in these languages.

Context: When ideas are extinguished, we all end up poorer. Half of the planet's 7000 languages are now in danger of extinction: a drastic change in humanity's intellectual history. The basis of human knowledge is enduring, and during 99% of the our history, it was transmitted by word of mouth. Yet, it is fragile. It is largely not written, and vulnerable to be forgotten. Digital technologies can help document and preserve this knowledge found in these languages.

Objectives: To train 12 indigenous participants with the goal that they learn how to create a registry of their endangered languages by creating new linguistic materials, such as talking dictionaries through the use of computers, cameras, audio recorders and other technologies. (The workshop will be conducted in Spanish).
