How I Can Apply What I Learn at Shishu-Kan

Some of the advantages of GSAIS are to be able to interact with teachers and other students easily, to explore various non-expertise fields ranging from tea ceremony to science and to have access to diverse learning including lectures, study groups, or students-organized events etc. I would like to find my balance between making the most of those opportunities and focusing on my own study and to push my boundaries.

Research Topic

ICT has been expected to play a role as a new tool for education, especially as a way to give opportunities to those who had not enjoyed a quality education before. Therefore a variety of actor including international organizations has used and practiced it in many development fields in order to improve disadvantageous situation over education. In addition, diverse learning has become possible recently thanks to the advent of new idea, typically MOOC (Massive Open Online Course). However, not all people has benefited from those new technologies. In my research, I would like to find how to use it in a best and ideal way in remoted area, especially developing countries including the viewpoints of practice and policy.
