Global Education

Building global connections and sharing ideas across borders
This project researches on designing global co-learning experiences using digital technologies in order to realize compatible society. Nowadays the relationship among different countries needs to be stronger, since the social issues are becoming multilateral and more complicated. We address those challenges from the education perspective with digital tools and distance communication. Education changes people’s lives and then people change the world. We learn from others around the world throughout our lives, and technology is changing how we teach and learn across borders. The Global Education Project designs and create new styles of learning and education to empower learners of any age to solve issues in the global society.
