Here you have an useful tool for engage learners with a topic or a class. This page allows teachers to use realia in order to provide students a real environment about what is happening around the word. It provides three different levels which contain different elements such as news, nature, history, or funny and interesting information, etc. Everey element mentioned before, has many videos or audios with a short introduuction about the topic. 

I consider that it is very useful in order to contextualize learners.
