The Tribal Affairs Department conducted a preliminary coordination interaction with Japan based SHIN Education for activity based learning to be introduced in 100 tribal area schools as a pilot project in Jammu and Kashmir.
This innovative attempt is to empower the students with logical thinking and creativity through SHIN PROGRAM, a Japanese style experiential holistic group learning program from JAPAN, based on various hands-on activities. The main focus is the complete development of children, soft skills (non-cognitive abilities) and essential skills (cognitive abilities) through the Japanese style learning program.
Chief Executive Officer, Takanobu Tanaka, joined the discussion through video conference from Japan while the officers from the J&K administration also participated in the discussion.
Tribal Affairs Department endeavors to strengthen primary education of students in remote tribal areas and the focus is on strengthening schools in catchment areas of Eklavya Model Residential Schools besides covering migratory season schools. Apart from infrastructure support the programme will focus on key learning outcomes.
The objective of SHIN PROGRAM is not only to improve a child’s ability for a specific subject such as Mathematics and English, the initiative rather focuses on creating strong fundamentals for all subjects in children and improving 21st century skills (Cognitive & Life skills) that are universally essential.
