Junior High School Technology Teachers Online Exchange Session

Creating International Collaborations For Design-Technology Education

Last year, we started the Design-Technology Education Online Exchange Forum. We were able to invite speakers from Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore to share their insights on Design-Technology Education.

This year, we are building on the exchange forum to create opportunities to explore the possibilities of project-based collaborations between Japanese technology teachers and Taiwanese technology teachers. To explore collaborations, we planned to organize exchange and information sharing sessions to invite Japanese technology teachers and Taiwanese technology teachers to share with each other the types of programs and projects that they are doing in their lessons.

The first Junior High School Technology Teachers Online Exchange Session was held on 22 Oct 2021. This exchange session was co-organized with Professor Kuen-Yi LIN (NTNU, Taiwan) and the graduate students in Professor LIN’s lab.

In the first meeting, Ms Lesley CHEN and Mr Jun KAWAMATA shared their class activities and the projects that they had done in their lessons. We are looking forward to holding the 2nd meeting on 12 Dec 2021. If possible, we hope to invite Japanese teachers who are interested in this exchange of ideas and collaborations with Taiwanese teachers to join us in our exchange meetings.
