Webinar 1 report: 3 tools to virtualize your classroom

Last week OnlinEnglish hosted the first webinar from the series "Virtualize Your Classroom" for English teachers. We had a great time learning about 3 tools that could potentially make your group of students more engaged and extend the learning beyond the traditional classroom to make language a tool rather than a goal. The 3 tools that teachers acquired in the course of the webinar will help them not only become more technologically savvy, but create unique lessons, tutorials and banners. So, below are the three tools and their short descriptions and then you'll find the link to the 41-min recording of the webinar (in Russian).
