M C Squared partner University of Potsdam is bringing our technology to Japan. During a JSPS short-term fellowship at Toho University, Nagoya and RIMS Kyoto, Ulrich Kortenkamp is discussing widget technology with Japanese researchers in mathematics education.

The research visit helps to understand the requirements of other communities of interest, and to leverage their creative potential. The switch to constructivist resources with interactive affordances is not straightforward, but can be supported by the technology developed in M C Squared. In addition, new ways of collaboration between developers and also between students are opened up. The fact that a lot of the subprojects in M C Squared are available as Open Source Software is also crucial and has been proven to speed up the integration of new approaches, also into cultures that differ extremely from our European view. We are looking forward to the production of our Japanese friends!
