ICT in Education

Toward Glocal Digital Citizens 


At Amicus, we aim at fostering an appropriate attitude to participate in the information society.


Students are familiarized with Digital Ethics within moral education classes and whenever using technology or digital information sources such as search engines, online encyclopaedia, newspapers, etc.:


  • Lectures and discussions on positive and negative aspects of daily technology
  • Cross-curricular development of critical thinking and media & information literacy (validity and quality of information, opinions vs. facts…)
  • Netiquette (basic rules of conduct) and legal issues (material licenses, cyber-bullying…)


Through various projects, students are encouraged to become active producers of information, art and technology:


  • Writing and sharing (essays, reports, blogs, reviews, presentations…);
  • Audio-visual production (instructional videos, creative short movies, podcasts…);
  • Software and hardware design (video games, robots, electronic devices…).

Using ICT in the Classroom

Here are some online programs and apps used at AMICUS.

Education at Library


The Media Center (Library) is located in the center of the school building. Children walk through the library to go to each classroom every morning. Since they have many opportunities to go through this hub, the library becomes a welcoming place for the students.

 A special feature of the AMICUS library is its volume of foreign books. As of 2020 School Year, the total is 13,600 books (8,600 Japanese books and 5,000 foreign books). Our foreign teachers help to select books which are worth reading and appropriate for the children. There are collections in English and Japanese for popular books, such as “Harry Potter”, or picture books. Therefore, the children can enjoy reading books in a unique AMICUS’ way, by reading one book in Japanese and try to read the same book in English or vice versa.
For the children who spend a long time of their lives in AMICUS, from Kindergarten to Junior High School, the media center is also a place to relax and socialize. We try to utilize the facility to fulfill children’s intellectual curiosity and watch over their growth through their reading experiences.









Children enjoy the nature of Okinawa while they learn about sea creatures.



Performance day
