Let's make the future Iiyama City with "MINECRAFT®"!Infiltrate the programming event of Iiyama City x Mouse Computer
GIGA School concept that started in earnest in 2020.This is a new educational measure that "establishes one terminal and high -speed Internet environment for children nationwide and promotes ICT education."Since the number of online classes has increased due to corona evil, it is being promoted at a rapid pace.
Under such circumstances, Iiyama City, Nagano Prefecture, is working on ICT education.Iiyama City selected one member of each school from elementary and junior high schools in the city, launched an ICT Utilization Research Committee in 2016, and promoted ICT education in elementary and junior high schools in the city.The arrangement of large displays, the development of high -speed Internet environments, and distributing each tablet terminal to students have been realized ahead of the country.
On August 8, a programming event was held by Iiyama City and a mouse computer.In this article, we will report on the event.
Programming while having fun through the game
The lecturer was Hiroki Shibara of the kids programming school "8x9 (hack)", which will be expanded nationwide around Kansai.He is a multi -active person, such as working as an active engineer and conducting programming education.
The purpose of this time is to let the participating children know what programming is and to know the fun of making things through programming through games.The world's popular sandbox game "MINECRAFT®" was selected.This time, we will use the MOD ( *) "8x9craft (hack craft)" for programming learning developed by "8x9".*: User data and files that remodel and add elements to enjoy the game more
We will rent a mouse computer tablet PC "MOUSEPRO-P101A" to participants.In addition, Dr. Shibahara used "G-Tune H5" from the gaming PC brand "G-Tune".

Dr. Shibahara explained the programming as follows."There is also a" program "in the athletic meet. The opening ceremony, preparation exercise, competition, etc. are written in order. The computer program is actually the same."
After that, you will experience programming while actually moving your hands.
Use a program that uses the original character Hakkun, the original character of "8x9CRAFT (Hack Craft)".By combining orders such as "Going forward", "going back", "turning to the left", and "turning to the right", you will experience "how the character works".
In addition, Dr. Shibahara also has a lecture such as "branching" and "repetition".It is a little advanced, but the children seem to get used to it immediately.He freely assembled the program and moved the character as desired.
After learning the basics of programming, we finally reached the main subject.In the world of Iiyama City prepared in "MINECRAFT®", it is an attempt to "create what you think is necessary for Iiyama City in the future."
What you make is whatever you make, but Dr. Shibara gave the title "Let's think from the SDGs" perspective."SDGs" is an international goal of 17 items adopted by the United Nations in 2015.In other words, considering the future of Iiyama City from the perspective of environmental issues and social issues, the necessary things are created with "Minecraft®".
In response to this task, the participants consulted with their parents and children and created the facilities they wanted, with the support of Dr. Shibahara and staff.
At the end of the event, we announced the facilities created by the participants and the reasons for the architecture.For example, parents and children who created a hydropower facility with windmill commented, "We thought that we should create clean energy in consideration of environmental issues."
In addition, "obstetrics and gynecology clinics to solve the declining birthrate problem", "underground reservoirs to prevent river flooding", and "objects that are likely to become a town that excites the tourism industry".The facilities that were thought out more than expected were announced one after another, and each time the venue had great applause.
What is the promotion of ICT education that Iiyama City thinks?
This event closed with great excitement.In the first place, why did Iiyama City focus on ICT education so much and how do you achieve results?We asked Hiden Matsuki and Toshi Iwasaki of Iiyama City.
According to Matsuki, Iiyama City has been focusing on ICT education since around 2016.However, not all schools can start in a row.So, first, Kijima Elementary School in the city was recognized as a model school in ICT education.In partnership with a mouse computer with a factory in Iiyama City, we introduced 50 tablet terminals and started using it at school sites.
Mr. Matsuki: "Some teachers wanted to actively work on ICT education. So I had the teacher train training, and then asked Kijima Elementary School to be assigned to ICT education."
In the wake of Kijima Elementary School's initiatives, Iiyama City launched the ICT Utilization Research Committee in 2016.We selected the principal of each school and one ICT research committee member and exchanged information.
In 2018, a large display was placed at all elementary and junior high schools.It seems that he gradually improved the ICT education environment, such as using it for class.
At present, the GIGA School concept has become a tailwind, and ICT education in Iiyama City has been attracting attention nationwide.However, "It is true that there are still more temperature differences depending on the school and teacher," Matsuki says.
"We have to share our efforts through the ICT Utilization Research Committee and proceed little by little," said Iwasaki.
Mr. Iwasaki: "Iiyama City has to raise all schools to the same level. There is also a corona, and the GIGA school concept has been quickly passed forward.I have to go
This programming event was held in such a situation.They looked at the events and said, "It was a very good opportunity."
Matsuki: "In Iiyama City, we held a programming class every year during summer vacation, but since last year, it has been canceled due to corona.It was good. "
Mr. Iwasaki: "I hope this event will be held regularly in the future, with thorough measures to prevent infection.
Tablet PC that is also used in educational sites
As mentioned above, "MOUSEPRO-P101A" was used in this event.Originally, Iiyama City has a partnership with the mouse computer in the ICT education field, and has introduced the model to the school site.Therefore, "MOUSEPRO-P101A" seems to have been a familiar terminal for the participants.
"MOUSEPRO-P101A" is 10.A 2in1 detachable personal computer that is equipped with a type 1 display and a keyboard cover and can use tablet style/notebook PC style properly.The biggest features are high robustness and powerful dust -proof and drip -proof performance.In addition, since it has a handle to use a stand, it can be used as a convenient handle when carrying around 180 degrees.
Because it is a cheap and cost -effective model, it can be said that it is easy to introduce it to educational sites.It is very popular among the children and parents who participated this time, and comments such as "I'm happy to be able to use it as a tablet or a personal computer", "It's easy to see it crisp and easy to see", and "It's light and small for children".I was sent.
A 2in1 detachable computer equipped with the Intel® Celeron® processor N4100.The design is easy for children to use due to the robustness of peace of mind, dustproof and drip -proof support.It is a "GIGA School concept -compatible PC" that is also suitable as a learning terminal at the educational site.
On the other hand, Dr. Shibahara used "G-Tune H5".It is a machine with high performance that allows you to play every game without stress, and is also used in e -sports tournaments and live game distribution.
This time, "G-Tune H5" became the base unit, and 20 "MOUSEPRO-P101A" was operated remotely.Even in situations where such loads are easily applied, they performed high performance.The performance of the graphics is perfect, and the flowing, reflection of the water surface, and even the clouds floating in the sky are displayed vividly.
A high-spec gaming notebook PC equipped with an Intel® Core ™ i7-10870H processor and adopts a 240Hz refresh rate-compatible liquid crystal display.It realizes a smooth video display and maximizes the charm of the game.＋＋＋
ICT education has just begun at schools nationwide.Many issues are still piled up, including what terminals should be introduced.In the future, it will be necessary to further increase the cooperation between schools and exchange information.
In such a situation, it is the existence of a private company that holds the key.It may be becoming increasingly important for local governments and private companies to support ICT education, such as Iiyama City x Mouse Computers, to support ICT education.
