Information Class Support Seminar" sponsored by Jikkyo Publishing

Six years have passed since the start of the new subject of information, and the next teaching guidelines are now being talked about.Under such circumstances, I am sure that you are making various attempts to develop your lessons in the subject of "Information", but I believe that there will be new challenges for the new course.Therefore, Jikkyo Shuppan has planned a seminar on "Information Classroom Support" to discuss current issues and preparations for the new course.I know that you are busy, but I would like to invite many teachers to this meeting and hope that we can provide you with an opportunity that will be useful for your classes.
