Line Official for Effective Student Communication

OTJ Sessions: Online Teachers Japan, Zoom session

June 27, 2020

Session Abstract: In these times of Emergency Remote Teaching, communication with students has become increasingly important. This presentation will discuss the use of Line Official as a means of securing effective communication with students. Line is the main mode of communication for most Japanese university students, so harnessing it for use in Teacher-student communication nearly guarantees students will get the message. Additionally, the use of Line Official, vs. standard Line, provides the teacher, and students, with a layer of privacy that standard Line groups do not provide. Attendees will leave this presentation with a firm grip on how to use this free resource to manage communication in their classrooms.
