"A Practical Introduction ot the 4Cs"


担当:Kieran Julian(キーラン ジュリアン)先生(神田外語学院 EICスーパーバイザー)





In our main English program at KIFL (Kanda Institute of Foreign Languages), we integrate the 4C framework – Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking – into every aspect of the course, especially through our project work.

Creativity is fostered through innovative project work that encourage students to think outside the box, for example via designing multimedia presentations. Communication skills are improved as students articulate their ideas, listen actively, and present their projects to classmates, teachers, and sometimes even a broader audience. Collaboration is at the core of our project work, as students work in teams to brainstorm, plan, and execute their projects.

Lastly, critical thinking is emphasized as students analyze information, evaluate different perspectives, and make informed decisions throughout the project process. I will demonstrate practical examples of how you can incorporate these 4Cs


Join me for an insightful presentation on integrating the 4C framework – Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking – into English education at your school. Discover how our innovative project work nurtures these vital skills, ensuring students thrive academically and personally. I will give several practical examples to enhance your classroom experience!
