"Introduction of Japanese-style Education Using Public-Private Collaboration Platform" (EDU-Port Japan)

  • 2016 EDU-Port Certified Project: Introduction of playing musical instruments to the primary and secondary music classes in Vietnam
  • 2018 EDU-Port Support Project: In-service training for musical instruments to take root in music education in Vietnam
  • 2020 EDU-Port Support Project: Introduction of Japanese-style Instrumental Music Education in Primary Education in Egypt

At the request of the Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam, this project has resulted in instrumental music education being incorporated into the new course of study and learning since September 2020.
Aiming to support the implementation of the new curriculum "Education 2.0," in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Technical Education of Egypt, we are supporting development of interactive classes — both teacher:student and student:student. By incorporating instrumental music education, we will further enhance Japanese-style education, which is drawing a great deal of attention from around the world, and examine methods for measuring non-cognitive skills (especially focusing on cooperation, self-esteem, discipline, and motivation) of students.

    Study on the introduction of Japanese instrumental music education into Egypt’s primary education

From June 2021, we have been carrying out activities to introduce instrumental music education in Egypt. We aim to contribute to SDGs Goal 4 "Quality Education for All" and Goal 17 "Partnership for goal" to develop non-cognitive skills of children through instrumental music education and develop a business model for promotional activities that is tailored to the educational situation in Egypt. In addition, we have been certified for this activity as a "JICA-SDGs Partner" (only available in Japanese).
