Mid Presentation for Uonuma studies was held at Kokusai Joho Senior High School (KJ) which is only one high school in Niigata Prefecture designated as Super Global High School (SGH) on November 18th, 2016. From International University of Japan (IUJ), Professor Tomohito Shinoda, Professor Naoko Kumagai and Professor Yuki Yanai participated in the presentation event to advise or guide high school students in their presentations.
SGH program is a project of The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) to foster globalized leaders who will be able to play active roles on the international stage through education at high schools that contribute to this mission.
KJ aims to foster talent who can disseminate the attraction of UONUMA to the world, and consider/suggest regional issues and related world issues from a global perspective. The research theme for SGH is set as “Developing global talents by sending our messages from the snowy rice-producing region of UONUMA～Urasa to the world～”
In this presentation activity, 1st year KJ students made group presentations on topics of concerns, like agriculture, industry, environment, economics etc. IUJ faculty members advised or guided high school students in terms of logic, objectivity and originality from the prospective of researcher.
KJ and IUJ have promised to promote SGH program in concert with each other. We continue to work together on developing globalized leaders who will be able to play active roles on the international stage.
