Non-Formal Education for a Culturally Isolated Student in a Remote Area: The Case of a Thai Student Who Received Learning Assistance via the Internet
Maruyama, Hideki
Educational Studies in Japan: International Yearbook, v9 p27-39 Mar 2015
This article describes how a language minority student developed through flexible online learning assistance for the entrance examination of a Japanese public high school. The simple camera function of a digital tablet helped the isolated Thai student attain success in developing academic skills and self-esteem. The case also shows the insight that small public schools and local governments with few resources in remote areas can have advantages thanks to the tablet and the internet.
