関島 章江

While applying herself to the work of building and operating core and operational systems, as she parents her own children she has found herself disturbed about the speed gap between social environment and educational environment. When a business project she submitted to an internal competition was selected, she transferred to Open Innovation Lab in 2011 at the time of its inception. While being one of the earliest in Japan to achieve involvement in multiple demonstration experiments in "Adaptive Learning x Social," she has been working in various collaborations with others such as corporate and education insiders as well as guardian groups. She has done extensive research on educational matters inside of Japan and abroad, and has a broad network she can tap into. At the ICT Collaborative Open Network for New Educational Concepts with Technologies (ICT Connect 21) that was established in Feburary 2015, she did research as leader of the sub-group "Providing the Seeds for Needs that Schools Have" to promote ICT education in Japan and has since been active in connecting schools with companies. She has written a book called "Taking Exception with Japanese ICT Education" (Impress R&D). She has a column on Dentsu-ho (http://dentsu-ho.com/people/154). And for "Internet White Paper 2014," she has provided Section 5: Social Trends – 5.3 Education "Public Online Course: MOOC Trends"; for "Internet White Paper 2015," she has provided Section 6: Social Trends - 6-3 Education "Trends Education ICT."
