transcosmos was awarded the Demonstration Experiment Project: Applying Advanced Technology to Learning in the New Era (a project with the ICT Advisory Board), a one-year project starting in April 2020. At some point during the period, schools were all closed immediately due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, making it an urgent task to accelerate the GIGA School Concept, a government-led program to create an environment where all children can continue to learn with the use of ICT. GIGA stands for Global and Innovation Gateway for All, and the concept aims to create a home learning environment for all children by realizing “one device for one student”, providing home network connection, etc. In collaboration with MEXT, transcosmos has led initiatives to promote a better understanding of the GIGA school concept.
Created in cooperation with the advisory board made up of ICT experts and intellectuals, the guide covers all the elements needed to quickly realize “a device for a student” with relevant case studies. The guide also comes with a checklist at the end, which makes it convenient for users.
Through the guide, transcosmos aims to foster a better understanding of the GIGA school concept among the school board and school officials in order to quickly realize the concept, thus providing an optimal learning environment for every student in the new time. Drawing on its extensive expertise and experience in the GIGA school concept, transcosmos will promote its services specifically designed for local governments.
