​Teambuilding

 

Tittle:  Teambuilding

Date:  8/3

The aim of this section:

      The aim was to experience leadership.  We kept in mind three things that are important in team building; find               our own roles, cooperate with friends and aim the same goal through making a movie. 

What we did during the section:

           At first we decided a theme and a concept of a movie in 5 minutes. Next we made a draft and took a scene with              5 to 6 people from each group. At the end we showed it others in the farewell ceremony.

Participants' impression:

         Although I was a bit worried about the movie production during the time of team building, each group was able            to build relationships by discussing scripts, casts and directing. However, there was hardly sweetness of the time          of film production and recognition of it.

​Education

 

Tittle:  Education

Date:  8/4

The aim of this section:

           To share the history and the education of history in Asia before and after World War II, as well as to know            things that cannot be heard usually, such as diversities and differences among countries.

What we did during this section:

           ① Discussion About World War II in each group

           ②Presentation about Japan (Explain the process of progress of Japan during the Pacific War and at the                     end of war by using Japanese textbooks)

           ③Presentation about each country (stories of World War II in their own countries, images of Japan, etc.)

           ④Q & A , discussion

 

Participants' impression:

           1.Got to know the fact that there is an army in Singapore. 

           2.Felt the difference of historical recognitions, the way of thinking and national characters. Concretely,                      Chinese students strongly argued that World War II should not be forgotten. The difference seems to be                due to the difference of education of history.

           3.In spite of the heavy theme, the atmosphere was nice and we felt free to ask questions. Consequently we                heard stories that would not be heard without PAL.​

​Quality of life

 

Tittle:  Quality of life

Date:  8/4,  8/9

The aim of this section:

            As its name suggests, we focused on quality of life in order to observe life satisfaction and to think what can                 be the best way to be happy in the future. There are many methods and ways of thinking about how to be                     happy and we hope that you guys can find out through this day.

 

What we did during this section:

            We had prepared you quiz and "The Life of Game (QOL version)" and it was definitely fun doing them as a                   team. Our two days had only 2hrs each so they were not too serious, enjoyable.

 

Participants' impression:

           Everyone chose the same choice and said that spending time with precious person is more important than                  their property regardless of nationalities. It was absolutely interesting and had fun thinking about how to live              is the best way for me through the days.

         【DAY 2】Experiencing "Zen". Going to Sake cellar. Making Japanese paper.

Participants' impression:

          This trip turned out to be an awesome icebreaking experience for all of us. As we had a busy DAY contents in           Tokyo, short trip was so refreshing.  Exchange students had an interest in Japanese culture, so we were glad           that they enjoyed the time.

Participants' impression:

          Media is strongly related with countries’ history or social back ground. Therefore, by knowing the current                 situation and problems in each country, we get to know more about cultures and social situation of their                   countries form new aspects. The problems of each country has its own character and it also becomes the                   opportunity to think about how each country should corporate to solve their own problems.
