Next-Generation Education Responding to the Society of 2030 to Children


In the society of 2030, aging, globalization, and computerization will have further progressed. Each person must have the quality and ability to collaborate and then solve various problems that occur not only in Japan but also at a global level. To respond to that necessity, an educational system must be envisioned that not only fosters the development of cross-subject skills to acquire specialized knowledge and solve problems, but which also supports the development of character such as curiosity, endurance, ethics, and leadership, which is important to build proper relations with others and society. This research project has been in place to develop new educational and evaluation models in collaboration with the OECD, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and The University of Tokyo.

The project comprises three departments. Department 1 proposes 21st century teaching models by recording classroom practices on video and by analyzing them from a perspective of the development of skills and character. Department 2 proposes evaluation models for the development of generic qualities and abilities through evaluation using rubrics based on performance-based tasks and through the investigation and model design of learning assessment. Department 3 proposes evaluation models for the development of character traits in extracurricular activities through examination of investigative and evaluation methods for developmental possibilities of character traits in extracurricular activities, such as “Moral Education” and "Special Activities."
