I have taught ESOL in a number of different settings from middle school in China, volunteer adult education to university.In some institutions, the curriculum is strictly enforced with little flexibility, while others have a lot of flexibility. There are many types of learners with different learning styles. As each learner has different learning styles and abilities, designing the curriculum, as well as the technology needs to take these aspects into consideration, whether it be at a brick and mortar institution or an online distance institution. It is important to continually evaluate the curriculum and whether or not the students are learning. If they are not learning from the lesson, it may be necessary to change either the technology or the lesson plan.
