According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2009, there were approximately 21% of children and students, aged from five to 17, spoke a language other than English at home, and 5% spoke English with difficulty (Crane, 2012). ESL/EFL students need help; ESL/EFL teachers need support. Integrating technology for TESOL can make a difference in improving ESL/EFL children students’ language skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing while encouraging vocabulary building and grammatical competence. This presentation is to provide Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Language (TESOL) selected digital resources to help ESL/EFL children and students improve English language skills.
