LanSchool now includes the ability for a teacher to start and maintain a group chat. This aids with collaboration among students.
Chat is a simple, trusted way for teachers to communicate with students without disrupting the rest of the class.
Send message is the quickest way to keep a student on task. Once a student knows that the teacher is watching, that is usually enough to keep them focused. Messages can be typed in or selected from the last 10 messages sent. They can be sent to one, selected or all students in the class.
Many students are embarrassed to raise their hand and would prefer to alert the teacher without the other students knowing. With LanSchool v7.5, students can electronically raise their hand by typing in a question to the teacher. The teacher can respond though a chat session and respect the student’s desire to not be recognized.
Teachers can audio chat with a student, listen to students and broadcast audio to all or selected students.
