In January 2017, Japanese Education Minister Tsuneo Kawamura unveiled the new Japanese-focused classroom teaching materials curriculum, aimed at boosting teacher retention, making learning easier and raising teacher pay.
In his remarks, Kawamura made a number of promises about the new curriculum, which he described as “truly a comprehensive approach to teaching”.
“As we have said before, the purpose of this initiative is to enhance our teaching system and to provide students with the knowledge they need to succeed in the job market and in life,” Kawamura said.
“It is also intended to enhance the quality of our teaching materials by giving teachers a high-quality, reliable source of teaching materials.”
As the number of teaching professionals increases, we will have to prepare our teaching material for the needs of our future generation.””
We will also strengthen our public education system by making it even more effective,” Kawampas said.
The ministry is using the new curricula to train teachers for its new teaching system.
The new curriculum includes teaching materials for English, Mandarin, Japanese, Chinese, Tagalog, Korean, and Vietnamese.
Kawamura says it will give teachers access to the latest teaching technology and a “more advanced” learning environment.
The new curriculum comes at a time when the Japanese government is also working to improve the quality and availability of Japanese language teaching materials through new curriculum.
In February, the Ministry of Education and Training announced a new Japanese language curriculum that aims to make teaching materials more affordable and accessible to low-income students.
The curriculum will be available through a new e-learning platform.
“We are pleased to see this curriculum and the government’s efforts to make learning in Japan easier and more accessible.”””
The new English language curriculum is an important step in providing our students with access to quality, up-to-date English language teaching material,” NTU president Yukiya Kawaguchi said.
“We are pleased to see this curriculum and the government’s efforts to make learning in Japan easier and more accessible.”
“But we are also worried about the quality,” NTUs national education representative Yoshinori Ohno told CNN.
“It’s just not the same as the quality in English, because it’s not based on a lot of facts.”
“In order to achieve quality in education, we have to look at what’s in the materials and not just the content, and in this case, the quality is not high,” he said.
