Open Classrooms

Learn together:
The Open Classrooms are a series of talkboards where students in Japan and the UK can send messages linked to different subjects on the curriculum. There are mirror Japanese and English pages where all messages are translated so students can communicate without any language barrier.

Discover a new culture:
As they learn about a set topic together, students will discover a new culture and consider new ways of looking at the world.

Tailor your learning:
Each talkboard is accompanied by several worksheets relating to the theme. Some feature mini projects to help your students bring the topic to life, others guide students on how to structure and respond to a message. Students can also talk about what they’re learning in their classes at the moment.

Make friends:
Alongside the schedule of subject-based talkboards we feature a year-long general board (The Lunch Room) where students can get to know more about their new friends.

Be safe:
The Open Classrooms are password-protected for use by students at registered schools and moderated by Japan Society staff.

Teachers and students in Japan and the UK are invited to participate in our brand new programme starting in September 2011. Register online at www.japanuklive.org The Open Classrooms are suitable from KS2 and ideal for topic-based learning, or as a guided programme for clubs and other extra-curricular groups. This resource is provided free of charge to participating schools.

Japan UK LIVE! is run by the Japan Society, London. If you would like to know more about the Open Classrooms or our other Japan-related education activities in the UK please email education@japansociety.org.uk. You can also read about our wider activities and events at www.japansociety.org.uk
