Development of online education environment
The GIGA School Initiative was launched by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in 2019 with the aim of creating an ICT *1 environment for children across the country. J:COM provides the "GIGA School Plan *2" to families with eligible children and supports the use of learning devices at home. Furthermore, in some areas, we are working to improve the educational environment by providing dedicated networks to boards of education and governments and increasing speed.
- *1 Communication using communication technology
- *2 Internet special price plan with Wi-Fi standard equipment
Improving information literacy
We hold classes on how to use smartphones safely, mainly for elementary and junior high schools in the Kansai area. We tell children how to use the Internet in a safe, secure, and convenient way, such as how to interact with SNS and the importance of security.
We will continue to work on educational activities to improve the information literacy of all people who use the Internet, from children to seniors.
Learning through hands-on classes
Local elementary school students learn about "teamwork and a sense of responsibility through producing news programs." Learn from J:COM staff about reporting, script writing, announcements, cameras, sound and lighting, and produce programs. The program also fosters curiosity and communication skills through classes.
