Shizuoka's Online Study Room

Shizuoka Prefecture's Comprehensive Education Center has started a free Internet study system. Called "Asunaro Gakushushitsu," it provides resources to study English, math and science. The English "classroom" has three parts: Activity Box, Story Box and Tool Box with several different activities in each. The Activity Box, for example, includes a version of the game Jeopardy for practicing listening and grammar as well as general knowledge. In the Story Box, exercises are based on stories divided into 7 levels (though there seem to be technical problems with this section today - ed.). The contents were all developed by center staff who are active teachers, and there are plans to incorporate teachers' lesson planning ideas and gather input from parents and students.
