Kamino, Yukitaka
This research proposes a class structure to nurture thinking about the way an advanced information society ought to be and how to engage its citizens. It attempts to practice and verify thinking based on these goals. The Saitama Prefectural Government’s initiative which utilizes a Honda Safety Map based on big data and created to prevent traffic accidents, was used as social studies material for primary education. In social studies classes focusing on this theme, two relevant points were identified. Firstly, it is important to be able to interpret the meaning of social phenomena by visualizing and identifying things that motivated massive, extensive, and timely information gathering. Secondly, it is important to consider the improvement of citizens’ livelihood as well as industrial development. Furthermore, to resolve the conflict among the benefits of industrial development and improvement in citizens’ livelihood, and the protection of personal information, we need to think about to what purpose we allow personal information to be collected and to which kind of institution we assign third-party transfer rights. This study was useful to evaluate the learning process involved to assess what rules and laws are necessary in this context.
