Abstract

As well as previous project APEC HRD 03/2006, 02/2007, there are four phases in the financial year 2008 project. First phase is aimed to share the ideas and planning the Lesson Study in Japan. Second phase is aimed to engage in Lesson Study to develop the models. Third phase is aimed to report the results of Lesson Study and share the models. Fourth phase is aimed to adapt the model in each economy.
In this 2008 APEC project, first phase is planed as APEC-Tsukuba International Conference (III) and carried out in Tokyo and Kanazawa in Japan.

Date: December 9 - 14 (15), 2007
Venue: Tokyo, Kanazawa and Kyoto, Japan
Organized by: University of Tsukuba (Japan)
Co-organized by: Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT),
Kanazawa University (Japan), Khon Kaen University (Thailand)
Supported by: Japan International Cooperation Agency, Japan Society of Mathematical Education, Japan Society for Science Education
