【GSGS: Public Policy School】Special Lecture: Ethnography of Japanese Early Childhood Education (on December 14)
Dec. 06, 2019
This event will feature a talk, with video-clips, by Akiko Hayashi and Joseph Tobin, followed by a discussion by panelists Yoichi Sakakihara and Taro Machiyama. The event will focus on defining key characteristics of Japanese Early Childhood Education, including the meaning of teaching, how Japanese teachers teach with their bodies and Japanese preschools support children’s social-emotional development. These questions will be explored from the perspectives of child development, anthropology, educational sociology, and pedagogy.
Please join this discussion about Japanese early childhood education. We would like to invite scholars, teachers, policymakers, students, parents (Japanese and foreign) and the public who are interested in Japanese culture and education to also join us. The event will be conducted in both Japanese and English.
