Perspectives towards Internationally-Competitive Competences in Modern-Day Educational Context
International Baccalaureate (IB)
the factory model
Creative learning processes at class/home should have so far been introduced in Japan as an alternative pedagogy divergent from traditional lectures. These one-way lectures may mislead most students to “reactive” habits rather than “proactive” attitudes, though the latter would be surely required by the internationally-competitive settings. Project-based learning, alongside knowledge-based self-taught, could fulfill these modern-day needs, in terms of boosting learning competencies. Its possible benefits are to be discussed here with references to the worldwide educational standards such as International Baccalaureate (IB), as well as the OECD’s PISA competencies, with other alternative educational trends in the current globalised context.
