Are you a direct hire ALT?

thread
Are you a direct hire ALT?
What do you think it means to be a direct hire ALT? Do you get the same benefits as your JTEs and other subject teachers? For example, access to the school’s network to plan your team-teaching curriculum. What about your very own school account or school e-mail address?

Some years ago, I have seen Japanese assistant teachers with a U.S. school e-mail address. Then, I learned they could apply for a $1000 grant to purchase Japanese language teaching materials!!

In Japan, however, schools are known for being low-tech in the classroom. But, here's the thing. It doesn't have to be like that. There is a FREE education plan for teachers and students. Once the school admins apply for these and are set up, you will get something like this shown on the photo below - when login with a school .ed.jp account.

*If work tablets are provided, the use of Microsoft Teams will be efficient for smooth communication between schools and when ALTs are assigned to multiple schools on a weekly basis.

STEM: Learn to Code

thread
STEM: Learn to Code
If you ever walk into a computer club and see Japanese public students are simply playing old-school free games like I did, why not change it and advocate the STEM program!

Your students can access the STEM: Learn to Code on Eigo Ganbare Classroom Portal.
