The Super Global High School Program, Tamagawa Academy, Japan
David Selby and Fumiyo Kagawa are to join the High Panel Team, an external advisory body, established for the Super Global High School Program at the Tamagawa Academy, Tokyo, Japan. The Program is a new five year initiative launched by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) in April 2014. It aims at helping Japanese high school students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become global leaders who can positively contribute to a global society faced with multiple global challenges (click here for further information on the program in Japanese). Tamagawa Academy is one of the 56 high schools selected by MEXT. Predicated on its longstanding commitment to whole-person education and education for international understanding as well as building on its extensive international networks, Tamagawa Academy’s initiative will be focused on curriculum development and teacher capacity development so that students can develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to become future global leaders. Tamagawa’s program also seeks to motivate students to choose future career with UN, INGO and other international organizations.
Sustainability Frontiers will be involved in external monitoring and evaluation of the program and in advising the Tamagawa Academy on continuous curriculum improvement and teacher development.
