Today's blogs slant towards video, so in that spirit, a great tool for teachers or anyone is Livestation. A great way to integrate video in the classroom.Livestation is without a doubt one of the most impressive collections of live television viewing for Windows, Mac, and Linux users. The reason being that the number of choices for users to freely consume at one moment or another is fairly large. Want to access CNN? Go right ahead. CNN International is there, too. Plus FOX, Discovery, Bloomberg, NBC, ESPN, ITV, Sky News, BBC, France 24, Russia Today, Deutsche Welle, Al Jazeera English, CBC and others. Some options provide English, French, German, and Arabic language services as well. And the company just last week added partnerships for BBC Arabic, C-SPAN, Russia Today Arabic, France 24 Arabic, and Euronews German, French, and Arabic.
This is a great resource for history teachers to tune into relevant news and information around the word. Best of all it's quick and easy to load... oh, and free.
