The Internet and Dictatorships - 2 Mashups

These two links form a large part of the lesson on The Internet and Dictatorships, featuring a TED talk and an article by Evgeny Morozov.  The lesson is designed to give advanced ESL students practice with all the basic language skills (listening, reading, speaking, writing) while engaging with an advanced topic and vocabulary.

  1. Your mash-ups are phenomenal, Tasha! Both of those would work well with your intended learner audience. I left you voice comments on both. The Conversations could use a few more instructions as to what to click when. I finally remembered mine from a while ago but still ended up clicking around a fair amount. Congratulations on getting each mash-up set up on one page, complete with quiz!
