Research Topics

1. First year experience for scholastic aptitude increase.

2. Development of the environmental education material which finds influence of an antibiotic and other chemicals.

3. Study on educational method leading to deep learning using educational robots and tablets.

Student's scholastic aptitude decline is regarded as a problem recently. The reason is because the learning for which I depend on memorization is being performed. I am conducting research on educational methods to raise comprehensive problemsolving skills and thinking skills suitable for each stage from elementary to university students. For university students, I am studying educational method to establish active learning method accurately as first year experience. And I am creating teaching materials to acquire basic academic skills. For elementary and junior high school students, I am developing teaching materials using tablets and educational robots. In order to be interested in familiar environmental issues and to be able to carry out sustainable environmental protection activities, I am developing environmental education teaching materials that can be used in school classes.
