About this item

This volume critically analyses continuing educational initiatives in Japan, from 1900 to the present day, with a particular focus on learner-centred and creative approaches. Chapters consider key collaborative improvements to teacher education, as well as group learning, ‘life education’, the creative arts and writing, and education for girls and women. The book examines Western influences, including John Dewey, Carleton Washburne and A. S. Neill, as well as Japan’s own progressive exports, such as holistic "Zenjin" education, Children’s Villages and Lesson Study, highlighting cultural encounters and progressive initiatives at both transnational and internal levels.
