Sociology of Education Laboratory

Thinking about education from broad social perspectives

We are conducting research based on educational sociology, which analyzes education from sociological perspectives. Our laboratory deals with social phenomena and educational issues by establishing hypotheses, collecting data and analyzing/interpreting them in collaboration with our students. With the advancement of information-intensive education, it is desirable to develop technologies based on the needs of students and teachers at elementary, middle and high schools. With regard to our laboratory’s association with engineering, we can identify such educational and social needs and conduct basic research to make technological proposals.
