Ever been interested in Japan? Well, Japan is interested in you! Well, more specifically, your classroom.

In the pursuit of augmenting human potential and improving education worldwide, we’ve found that traditional education methods are not enough to foster active learning, in an increasingly digital world, especially when they involve unilateral lectures for students without providing them the opportunity to apply their own knowledge or collaborate effectively.
