◆ 4 reasons to be chosen
01. Learn about STEAM education
STEAM is a coined word that combines the initials of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics, and is an educational policy that emphasizes these five areas.
It is a concept that spread from the United States, but even in Japan, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology has proposed that all students should learn STEAM education, which is the foundation of thinking. Let's move on.
The “Future Classroom and EdTech Study Group”, an expert panel on educational reform led by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, also advocates “STEAM learning” as one of the three pillars of its proposal, and various dissemination activities are being carried out. increase.
In the future, where children will live, AI will be both a competitor and a partner. While there is an increasing demand for students to find their own problems, work on them with enthusiasm, and create new innovations, STEAM education, which comprehensively teaches programming, science, art, etc., is expected to realize this.
02. Produced by a professional team of education
Wonderbox is produced by WonderLab, a professional team for educational content production.
Wonder Lab has been hosting research classes for more than five years as a place where children can get real reactions. By having people involved in the development of teaching materials, such as problem creators, engineers, and designers, participate in the classes, we are able to deliver teaching materials that are constantly being brushed up in the field of education. The teaching materials created in this way have been highly evaluated outside the company, such as providing problems for Shogakukan's learning magazine, supervising the official Pokemon YouTube channel, and educational toys.
03. Effects on IQ and Academic Ability
We believe that the ability to learn is the "multiplication" of "motivation," "thinking ability," and "knowledge and skills." By increasing your motivation and thinking ability, the learning that accompanies the subsequent acquisition of knowledge will become many times more meaningful.
In a demonstration experiment conducted in Cambodia using the thinking skill development app “ThinkThink”, which is also included in the Wonderbox app, the group that performed ThinkThink every day compared to the group that did not, IQ tests and academic achievement tests results have increased significantly.
From this, we believe that it has been proved to some extent that the improvement of "motivation" and "thinking ability" is greatly related to the ability to learn as a result. This survey was conducted jointly with Makiko Nakamuro Laboratory at Keio University and JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency), and has been published as a thesis.
04. Enhanced features for parents
In Wonderbox, we have introduced a "sleep function" that comprehensively considers the impact on children's eyesight, the contrast in concentration, and the lifestyle of each family.
"Challenge Record" and "Wonder Gallery" are functions that allow you to record the changes in your child's interests and the beginnings of "likes" and "strengths" that you did not know before.
The "Family Support" information site for parents regularly provides information on how to work on teaching materials and useful information.
