Papua New Guinea senior officials conducted distance learning at KCG on the 6th and 7th

As part of JICA's “Distance Education Plan Training for Improving the Quality and Quantity of Papua New Guinea Education” by JICA to support distance education, which the independent countries of Papua New Guinea support, June 6 On the 2nd and 7th of the day, we will visit the Kyoto Computer Gakuin Kyoto Station School of the group school, and conduct educational tours and training using the Internet.KCG, which has a proven track record, such as introducing an e-learning system ahead of other educational institutions and offering a wide variety of distance classes, will support the country's efforts.

There is a shortage of educational institutions and teachers in the country while the enrollment population is increasing.To make up for this, we are focusing on distance education using TV.

In the training, we plan to visit KCG's e-learning studio classroom and experience remote learning using the e-learning system.

KCG celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, and on June 1, the 50th anniversary ceremony was held at the Kyoto International House.The ceremony was attended by His Excellency Ambassador Ambassador Gabriel John Clero Dusaba, who gave his congratulations.KCG donated 53 computers to the University of Goroka in 2009 and provided computer education support in 2009 as an overseas computer education support activity (IDCE) that has been underway for many years.That led to the participation of the Ambassador to Japan at the commemorative ceremony, and the implementation of JICA training by senior officials of the Ministry of Education.
