Uchida Yoko at the Forefront of the Education Revolution

Article - March 18, 2024

Utilizing its know-how accumulated over more than 100 years, Uchida Yoko is changing the way we learn through innovation in classroom design and digital transformation implementation.

Uchida Yoko is driving Japan’s digital transformation in the education sector through its innovative data utilization and equipment supplies.

Established over 100 years ago, the company is the leading educational equipment supplier in Japan. Uchida Yoko has collaborated with the Global Innovation and Gateway for All (GIGA) school initiative to provide school students throughout Japan with over 1.4 million PCs and equipment. Uchida Yoko’s participation in the initiative has also included the construction of school networks, and full cloud computing using cutting-edge technology.

The company also focuses on creating software that empowers students to visualize and interact with their academic progress, developing an online dashboard that collates student academic performance data. Moreover, its e-learning portal, L-Gate, is used by approximately 750 organizations, 9,000 schools, and 3 million students throughout Japan.

Uchida Yoko acquired the digital educational assessment company, Open Assessment Technologies (OAT) of Luxembourg, to contribute to the development of testing, which the company’s president, Noboru Okubo, envisages “will be applied to the next generation of testing, not only in Japan but also worldwide.” Uchida Yoko is hoping to succeed in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2025 so it can “use the data to improve and enhance teaching methods, optimize teaching for each student based on evidence, and improve educational administration,” says Mr. Okubo.
