Akahori, Kanji
The 100-school networking project began in Japan in 1993, sponsored by MITI (Ministry of International Trade and Industry and Ministry of Education). The features of this project can be summarized as follows: (1) one server computer per school; (2) supported by government organization or quasi government organization; (3) supported by local volunteer groups including company engineers; and (4) a voluntary activity plan proposed by each school. The impact of the project on schools, applications, benefits and problems are discussed in this paper in terms of: connection of school to real world; introduction of wide area collaborative learning; change from memory-based teaching to problem-based learning; change of teacher's role; change of communicating skills and computer literacy; establishment of social rules and manners; filtering harmful information; linkage to school curriculum; reducing computer teachers' load on network maintenance; enrichment of school learning environment; Internet-based evaluation methods; and self-establishment by communicating to the real world.
