Technological Advancements and Education at Leading Educational Institutions
With the technological advancements of 21st century, new forms of educations are coming into play. The introduction of MOOC’s (Massive Open Online Classes) run by universities such as Harvard and MIT has allowed a much wider audience to gain access to high level education.
Mr. Hane participated in a research group formed by professors from MIT and Harvard, and the research group often experimented with utilizing new technology in education. Active Learning has been influenced by this innovative technological culture and approach to education, and incorporates technology in many of its services.
Research on Teaching Methods Using Both Digital and Real Space
However, the company also believes that no matter how advanced and innovative our technology becomes, the traditional in-person education form will always remain irreplaceably important; this is why top universities still seek to physically expand their campuses despite already having the resources to teach millions around the world through online classes. The more our technology develops the more the value of real-world interaction will increase, so what will be important going forward is studying how to utilize real and digital space for the best education.
By comprehending the significance of human connections, the staff at Active Learning is able to help develop the next generation of workers and create new fields of education.
For example, e-learning allows the Active Learning staff to convey information and training to large groups of people through the internet. Mr. Hane received an e-learning ministry of economy award for his incorporation of active learning into e-learning, creating a new active style of online education.
Educational App Development with Mr. Nakajima: e-Learning and s-Learning
In addition, the Active Learning staff realized the educational potential of smartphones and created an application called neu.Tutor with the help of Mr. Nakajima, a windows programmer. This app received an e-learning award in the smartphone learning category. However we did not stop at e-learning, and eventually came to develop s-learning, which brought about the concept of unconscious learning.
Zero Effort Learning System
Active Learning and its staff used creative methods and repetition to create a innovative educational program that presents content in an easily memorizable way. One important concept in several of our educational endeavors is ZELS (Zero Effort Learning System), which allows for learning at the subconscious level by students.
Through the company’s innovative education methods, the staff plans to revolutionize learning to make it more efficient than ever. If you are interested in applying modern technology to education, come work with Active Learning!
