Thoughts from the triplog

What does learn, extend, create mean?

learn, extend, createの意味とは?

The idea of learn, extend, create is a major part of triplo. It is used to organise the three types of lessons we teach and is a central idea in our approach to teaching English. But where does it come from, what does it mean and why do we use it?

Here we will explain the origins of learn, extend, create and tell you why we think it is important.

Four Key Skills You Need to Develop

伸ばすべき4つの重要なスキルとは

Education is changing, it has to change. The world of work is not the same as it was twenty years ago, let alone one hundred and fifty years ago, when mass education was first widely rolled out to provide educated workers for the industrialising world. The problem facing education today is that the knowledge that you learn at school or university is quickly becoming out of date because of the pace of change in technology and the work place. The question then is, what do I need to learn? First of all you need to learn to be a “dynamic learner”, someone who is able to develop their skills and knowledge as needs arise, but more than gaining knowledge, you need to harness four key skills that are transferable across domains - the "Four Cs” of creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.

教育は変化をし続けています。変化しなければならないものです。私たちの働く世界も変わり続け、150年前に工業化社会に対応するため労働者層向けの大衆教育が始まった時と比べればもちろんのこと、20年前とも違っていきてます。学校で学んだ知識は、職場や技術の現場で起こる変化の速さについていけないということが、現代における教育が直面している問題です。そこで、私たちは何を学ぶ必要があるのか、ということを考えてみましょう。まず第一に、必要に応じてスキルや知識を発展させることができる「動的学習者」になること。これは、知識を得ること以上に、どのような領域でも共通して使える4つの重要なスキル:Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, Critical thinking-創造性、コラボレーション、コミュニケーション、批判的思考という「4C」を活用することです。
