Educators from Shinshu University, IOT University and Nagano Prefecture secondary schools met at Minowa Junior High School in the city of Ina, Nagano, Japan. The topic of discussion included modeling and model-driven development (MDD) teaching methods. In Japan, modeling in various forms is being introduced into elementary and secondary education.
