Sony Global Education has engineered STEM101 as an open curriculum, in the sense that education partners from around the globe will be encouraged to take an active role in molding it, contributing and incorporating their expertise. Each of the above programs will be updated regularly in order to reflect changes in society as well as advances in education and technology. STEM101 is thus an altogether new, ever-evolving course of study. Sony Global Education is targeting a global expansion for the curriculum, engaging with governments and education professionals both in and outside of Japan.
As rapid changes in technology and the climate give rise to an increasingly complicated modern society, more and more problems are turning into truly global issues. These problems demand solutions, and knowledge alone is not sufficient to address them. Rather, the ability to utilize one's knowledge to work through a problem and arrive at a solution is what is key, perhaps more so than ever. As such, the nurturing of individuals who possess greater creative thinking prowess, decision-making aptitude, and power of expression is of paramount importance in the classroom. The STEM fields of study are critical in the development of these abilities and skill sets, and Sony Global Education will actively promote its STEM101 curriculum as a tool for opening children's minds and infusing them with a level of receptivity to the surrounding world, reasoning skills, and problem solving competency that are highly sought in the 21st century.
