Arata Zushi, from Nagoya City High School in Japan, spent two days in Etis shadowing teachers in order to learn more about student-centred learning (which is apparently still in its infancy in her homeland) and cutting edge technology in the classroom. She was delighted with her visit, describing it as a “wonderful experience”. Indeed the feeling is mutual. It is always a pleasure to meet with an open-minded, enthusiastic colleague, seeking new approaches to pedagogy. Could this be the start of a longer-term collaboration between our schools? We certainly hope so.
