I think that sharing the pedagogy of teaching science inquiry to Japanese teachers was a very worthwhile exercise and I would like to learn more from their perspective. The whole process was made very easy by our interpreter Keiko Tanagawa and Toshiko Yamashita who helped to set things up.
After my presentation, the official dinner with the Sony Science Teachers Association (SSTA) was held at a bar downstairs from where we were staying. It was a chance to share our experiences in Japanese schools and find out what teachers were up to. We are very grateful for SSTA and Sony Education’s support in organising the school visits.
