Benesse Corporation (Headquarters: Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture, President: Hitoshi Kobayashi, hereinafter: Benesse)’s online learning “Challenge School” will start from April 2023 with a new “Digital We will hold two courses: “Creator” and “Inquiry Learning” for 1st to 6th graders.
“Challenge School” is an online course where you can learn “what you like” at home, with a thorough focus on “first-class instruction,” “realization of growth,” and “reduction of the burden on parents and no transportation required.” In the “Dance” and “Art” classes that have been held since April 2022, “Parents and children can dance while singing and vocalizing the movements” and “You can learn not only from the instructor but also from other students’ works”. We have received many feedback that they have noticed the unique benefits.
The two courses that will be held from April this year are lessons that have received many requests from both children and parents. As “programming” in elementary and junior high schools and
“Information I” in high schools become compulsory, more and more parents want their children to acquire digital literacy (the ability to master IT). In addition, children’s interest in creative jobs that make full use of digital technology is high, and in a survey by Benesse that asked elementary school students what kind of job they would like to have, for the third year in a row, “YouTuber” ranked first, followed by “Manga artist/manga artist.” Illustrator/Animator” and “Game Creator/Programmer” ranked in (*) at 4th place. In addition, in the future world, it is necessary to “continue to learn on your own” even after entering society. In addition, the “Challenge School” believes that the habit of “continuing to learn on your own” can be acquired through inquiry learning from elementary school to high school. In addition, the experience of inquiry learning will be useful for “short essays” and “presentations” at the time of university entrance examinations.
Under these circumstances, at the “Challenge School”, under the guidance of active professional creators in Digital Hollywood, “digital creators” will develop their ability to express while acquiring and utilizing digital technology, and with a unique curriculum that focuses on careers, We have decided to open two new courses of “inquiry learning” that develops the ability to think and solve on your own while cultivating a view of work.

-About “Digital Hollywood Co., Ltd.”-
In 1994, he established Japan’s first practical industry-academia collaboration creator training school.

■ Inquiry-based learning
This course was developed in response to the voices of parents who wanted their children to “be interested in various things in the world” and “want them to learn and think for themselves.” We have prepared a unique curriculum with one occupational theme every month so that students can develop their career paths and views on occupations through exploratory learning that focuses on occupations. With a wide range of themes centered on occupations that are popular with children, this course allows students to experience the essence of occupations in a fun way while also feeling connections with daily learning content such as Japanese language, mathematics, science, and social studies.
For example, you will learn scenario writing (Japanese language) with the theme of “picture book author/manga artist”, and plane and solid figures (mathematics) with the theme of “architect”. Interest in both future occupations and daily learning content will increase, and motivation to learn and intellectual curiosity will increase. Lessons are taught by instructors with a wealth of experience teaching inquiry-based learning, and by using knowledge and skills in subject learning while participating in quizzes and working in small groups, thinking and expressiveness are nurtured. . This service is operated by receiving various inquiry learning programs from Co., Ltd., which operates an inquiry cram school.
