AKITA – April 2013 – Online Tools for Teaching and Learning – Christine Winskowski. This presentation was a workshop conducted in the CALL Lab of the Honjo Campus of Akita Prefectural University. It consisted of a tour of the latest, and coolest online tools for teaching and learning ? Some of the tools were more for teachers, several of the tools were more for students, and, of course, some work well for both. The online sites included sites to easily construct online lessons, text-to-speech, quiz construction, rubric construction, graphic organizers, whiteboards, and mindmapping. The presenter guided everyone through the well-organized links and explained the purpose of each resource as well as providing ideas on how to incorporate them into creative lesson planning.
