At Ritsumeikan Primary School, we utilize the latest technology while preserving the traditions of Kyoto. These traditions include pottery and tea ceremony. While learning about these historical traditions, we also offer programming classes to build robots at the same time.

Online Education in a country where ICT is considered to be lagging behind, what steps have been taken to introduce online classes from grade 1?

We will share how we did it!

We were the first school in Japan to successfully deliver a graduation ceremony online.

We will explore some of the methods and philosophy behind it, including:

  • Education using games – using Minecraft in the classroom. This is a program to recreate a World Heritage Site in a game and we plan to introduce it to schools abroad, in English.

This event will be presented by Hidekazu SHOTO, who was nominated for Global Teacher Prize 2019 Top 10.
