Putting video production into practice as a PBL – First, PM training

On Saturday, May 10th, 2014 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, we started to provide a PBL environment for video production at Abiko Nikaido High School.

This is an attempt to support the students’ video production activities throughout the year.

We will create an environment in which the entire project is viewed as project-based learning.


In the first session, we requested the cooperation of the NPO Project Management Incubation Association to conduct project management training to enrich team activities.

Of course, a self-evaluation sheet is also obtained as data before the training.

It was a four-hour long workshop, but I was impressed by how focused they were. It looked like it was going to work.
