Virtual Connections to Japanese Students

Virtual connections lead to meeting in person with Japanese students

For four months, more than 50 International Certificate (ICP) students and 25 Osaka Gakugei students participated in a virtual exchange with videos, Padlets, Zoom meetings, and email communication. This partnership culminated in the students meeting face to face in August 2021 in Ottawa with the ICP students taking on the role of intercultural tour guides by showing the Osaka Gakugei students around various parts of Ottawa, including visits to the Byward Market, Parliament Hill, and Lansdowne Park, as well as participating in fun activities such as mini-golf and bowling.

A video overview of the event can be found at the bottom and we look forward to attending next year's event in person.

OCDSB students enrolled in the International Certificate Program (ICP) showed themselves to be excellent hosts and were pleased to escort students from Japan to discover and explore many of Ottawa’s capital city landmarks in August 2021
