WHAT IS ACTIVE LEARNING ?
Active Learning generally describes when teachers do not use one-directional lecture styles of education and instead try to create methods of study and education where students actively and willingly participate in class.
(Translated from the glossary of the Ministry of Education, Sports, Culture, Science and Technology, MEXT)
The Government (MEXT’s) Decision to Introduce Active Learning
At the end of of 2014, a MEXT committee concerned with Japan’s core education decided to vigorously implement active learning into the early stages of education (kindergarten, primary, and secondary schools) throughout the country. Because of the major considerations for change being made by the government, such as the abolishment of the National Center Test for University Admissions, some say that this is a kind of revolutionary change that only occurs once in every 50 years. Since it was founded in 1997, Active Learning Co. has been trying to spread the concept of active learning in Japan to everyone from babies to company workers, and have been researching places around the globe where active learning is currently being used. Active learning has been proven to be useful in innovative product development, developing human resources, company creation and more. This company has been practicing active learning for about 20 years, and have developed a methodology.

WORK WITH US
Reinventing work styles!
Active Learning is not a conventional company; it is a community that takes the form of a company by availing the organizational structure in order to do meaningful work.
Therefore, there are no restrictions on how to work. Rather, the members of Active Learning Co. strive to create “new working styles” by constantly thinking and discussing collaboratively, because they strongly believe that a company and its culture is created by its workers. So when recruiting, Active Learning aims to bring together a diverse group of people and create a platform that enables them to communicate and work towards a common goal.
The company emphasizes the importance of being an active learner, and believes that employment should not be based solely on societal labels or numbers.
Do you have the motivation and ability to learn as well as the courage and will to take on challenges? Active Learning looks for hard-workers who can work efficiently and can handle the pressures that come with managing the unique and sustainable business operations of the company.
For those who are interested in the company’s working style or want to discuss further about any topic with the Active Learning members, come meet us on Active Learning Open Day (AOD): during the monthly get-together, anyone can approach Mr. Hane or the others at the company and speak freely.
We look forward to hearing your ideas, and we hope that you can join us on our journey to change the status quo.
