Ever been interested in Japan? Well, Japan is interested in you! Well, more specifically, your classroom. LoiLoNote School is a cloud-based classroom support system, based in Japan, looking to help schools from all over. 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. The benefits of active learning are wide-reaching across cognitive, ethical, and social competence, which bleeds into culture, knowledge, and experience to form more well-rounded, confident individuals. As we considered the best ways to access these benefits, our educational software came into fruition and has continued to be developed ever since.
