[Title] Classroom Practice for Developing the Ability to Inquire Scientificallyin High School Physics – Through hypothesis setting using science perspective and thinking –
[Abstract]The purpose of this practical study was to design and implement a high school physics class based on problem inquiry. In Practice 1, we focused on the hypothesis-setting scene and practiced the principle of thermal expansion using familiar events for students. In Practice 2, we presented students with a familiar task as a mission and conducted an inquiry activity on gravitational acceleration. In addition, we adopted a design that allows students to solve the problem through trial and error. In addition, we analyzed the students’ thinking process when they shifted from the explanatory hypothesis to the working hypothesis. In Practice 3, we designed a lesson on the principle of buoyancy for inquisitive learning in new learning contents. As a result, we found that the students were able to understand and express familiar phenomena from a scientific point of view by using familiar phenomena as the subject and presenting missions (questions) to be solved through trial and error. In addition, we were able to design a class that deals with new learning content through the process of inquiry as well as inquiry activities using previously learned knowledge.

[Title] Supporting of life and learning with device per student during summer vacation
[Abstract] The purpose of this study is to support home study and life support during the summer vacation for elementary school students using the devices distributed by the GIGA school concept. Considering the cases of disorder, the inability to go to school after the summer vacation, and the fact that it is said that the time and ability burdens of parents involved in home study during the summer vacation are large, we are considering how to solve it by using one device for each person. In addition, we aim to improve children’s ability to utilize ICT devices by providing opportunities for children to come into contact with ICT devices on a daily basis by taking advantage of long vacations.
[Title] First-year students who want to teach Organizing the perspectives necessary for double-entry class observation.
[Abstract] The purpose of this study is to develop a textbook to help first-year students in the field of remote islands and regional culture to have an appropriate viewpoint when they observe a duplex class for the first time. For this purpose, we first reviewed Yosuke Sawai’s book, “How to See a Class,” and organized the perspectives necessary for observing a duplex class. In the preliminary research, I learned that in order to know how to look at a class, it is necessary to look at the class through the instructor and through the children in order to acquire the appropriate perspective. Through this learning, we conducted interviews (hereinafter referred to as “preliminary research”) with teachers who had experience in the field as elementary school teachers and who had observed double-entry classes. Based on the results of the interviews and the reading of “How to See the Class,” we developed a textbook and conducted a survey to determine whether it would be useful for first-year university students taking this course to observe duplex classes. As a result, it was evaluated that the textbook is easy to understand and useful because it introduces the voices of in-service teachers and explains with tables and figures.
[Title] Development of a preliminary checklist for distance learning with overseas schools in elementary school foreign language classes
[Abstract] The purpose of this study is to develop a preliminary checklist for distance learning with overseas schools in elementary school foreign language classes. For this purpose, we conducted a survey on cases of distance learning with overseas schools and points to keep in mind when conducting distance learning by means of semi-structured interviews. Based on the results of the survey, we compiled a list of six items to be kept in mind when conducting distance learning with overseas schools. The following six points were listed: “Class planning ability (planning and design of distance learning),” “Content expertise (knowledge of distance learning),” “Communication skills (dialogue during distance learning),” “Feedback techniques (observation of children during distance learning),” “Techniques for presenting learning content (digital information transmission methods during distance learning),” and “Evaluation techniques (evaluation of remote learning).
[Title] Creation of a new instructional text on SNS bullying
[Abstract] The purpose of this study is to create an additional instructional text (hereinafter referred to as “text”) for SNS Note Nagasaki that incorporates new SNS (Social Networking Service). As a means to achieve this goal, we will create a new textbook not only focusing on LINE, but also focusing on other new SNS bullying, referring to the existing information moral teaching material “SNS Note Nagasaki”. According to the results of the survey, the text can be used as a teaching material, but there are opinions that some improvements are needed to make it easier for children to understand, According to the results of the survey, the textbook is usable enough as a teaching material, but some improvements are needed to make it easier for children to understand, so it is necessary to improve the textbook, have it evaluated again, and post the completed textbook on the website as an additional teaching material for SNS Note Nagasaki so that more people can use it.
