This site has incredible visuals if you need them for content areas.  The readings could be difficult for many ESL/EFL students, but the text could be pasted into sites that simplify reading.  I believe I've scooped some of those sites in the past.

When radio arrived, it too was deemed a menace, blamed for distracting children from their homework. A 1936 article in Gramophone magazine reported that youngsters had “developed the habit of dividing attention between the humdrum preparation of their school assignments and the compelling excitement of the loudspeaker”.

Interactive video platforms are the future of online learning

Interactive video platforms are the future of online learning | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Despite the leaps in technology that surround us, online learning is still not the success story that it should be. The old-school approach continues to produce better results. With today’s technology, there is no reason online learning can’t be revamped to compete with its traditional counterpart. Interactive video platforms can indeed enhance students’ experiences and increase engagement and retention.

Free Technology for Teachers: Google Expeditions Will Soon Be Available to iPad Users

Free Technology for Teachers: Google Expeditions Will Soon Be Available to iPad Users | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Last week Google released another round of updates to their Expeditions program. Expeditions is the virtual reality program that lets students experience immersive views of more than 200 places including the International Space Station, coral reefs, the Taj Mahal, and the White House.

Currently, to experience Expeditions you must have a Google Cardboard viewer and a supported Android device. According to last week's Google for Education blog post, soon you will be able to experience Expeditions on iPads. On your iPad you will be able to use full screen mode to view the Expeditions virtual field trips.

'Teachers must embrace new technology or risk becoming obsolete'

'Teachers must embrace new technology or risk becoming obsolete' | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Teachers residing in schools were the keepers of information. Schools determined who got what information and when they got it. Information for kids was determined and dispensed by the teacher. Control and compliance were the keys to the information and allowed for the orderly distribution of content. This was education for centuries.
