Keywords:21st-century skills, Flipped Learning, PeerEval, ZOOM, Virtual Language Exchange
Trilling and Fadel emphasized the importance of 21st-century skills early in 2000. 3Rs and 7Cs were particularly important, but now 8Cs should be added to ‘coexistence with AI.’ 8Cs should be emphasized in our pedagogy whatever subject we teach for 21st-century education. An empirical investigation was carried out from May 2020 to December 2020, targeting undergraduates in Tokyo. From the first semester of 2020, all courses were taught online with a ZOOM. About 30% of students enrolled in all classes were satisfied with virtual online learning; however, 30% of students were unsatisfied with virtual online learning. The second semester we carried out the experiment to promote the virtual exchange program with the National University of Singapore (NUS) for eight weeks. How the students learned under COVID-19 will be explained more in detail.
