Workshop Seminar & Christmas Party: “Introduction to Learning Coaching in the BBCOACH Way

Message (Seminar Outline)

Against the backdrop of globalization and the sophistication of ICT, Japan’s educational programs will be required to cultivate “21st century skills” that directly link “basic skills” and “thinking skills” to “living skills” (ability to work autonomously, ability to form human relationships, ability to participate in society and responsibility for a sustainable future).

However, without the existence of “learning coaches” who bring out the qualities and abilities of children through PBL, it is actually impossible to lead PBL to success.

Since 2003, the BBCoach Project, which organizes web contests for elementary and secondary school students, has been working together for 10 years with a number of “learning coaches” to create projects that tap into children’s creativity, guide them on their journey of exploration, and bring a smile to each and every one of them.

Come and experience the endless possibilities of the “BBCoach Method of Learning Coach”.


<To teachers who conduct PBL with children in elementary, junior high and high school classes and club activities

<To everyone who wants to learn the BBCoach method of learning coaching and become active in society

<Fathers and mothers who are serious about their children’s education.

<Workers and students who are interested in the future of education and culture in Japan
