Research Areas and Themes
Our research group is researching new education and learning created by information communication technologies (ICT). By utilizing ICT, it will be possible to provide education and learning that was not possible before. Also, what you have already done will be easier than ever. On the other hand, ICT is also a rapid-changing field. By introducing new technologies, we can expect to expand the possibilities of education and learning. There are various research themes such as information education, programming, teaching material development, ICT environment improvements, special support education with ICT, STEM/STEAM education, and AI applications. With regard to these research themes, we propose and practice system development as a research method. Through research, you will learn various things, such as programming and Internet technologies, from system developments. In addition, through conducting practical research, we will deepen our understanding of education and learning. Our aim was to contribute to society through research.
