JustSystems Corporation (Tokyo Head Office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan, Kyotaro Sekinada, President & CEO) will start offering "SMILE ZEMI - High School Student Course" on Thursday, November 17, 2022, for students aiming to pass the exam of the university of their choice using one tablet.
From April 2022, the New Educational Guidelines for high schools in Japan were introduced, and from January 2025 onwards, questions based on the new guidelines will be included in the Common Test for University Admissions. In principle, the entrance examinations for national universities will now consist of eight subjects in six subject areas, instead of the previous seven subjects in five subject areas, which means that high school students preparing for university entrance examinations will be required to learn more efficiently.
Based on the concept of "Aiming to pass the exam of the university of your choice using one tablet and without attending cram school", the "SMILE ZEMI - High School Student Course" consolidates all the learning materials of 31 subjects in six subject areas into one tablet, including class preparation and review for three years of high school, regular tests, seasonal courses, and preparation for the entrance examinations. Not only can you prepare, review, and learn ahead of time according to the progress of your school classes, but you will also be able to prepare for the intended entrance exam in mind with recommendations from your school. Also, the "Strategic AI Coach", a new feature of SMILE ZEMI, will be there for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and interact with you to create an optimal learning plan to help you achieve your goals of improving your test scores and passing the exam of the university of your choice, and coach you through your study approach to review. By accumulating and analyzing a range of data on one tablet, such as each student's learning status, level of understanding, tendency to make mistakes, and degree of forgetfulness, etc. it proposes a learning plan according to the student's level of learning achievement. In order to help you learn efficiently within a limited time period, it carefully selects the "materials you need to study now" from a vast range of materials, and guides you to achieve solid results in regular tests and university entrance exams.
High school students are busy not only with exams, but also with school events, club activities, and hobbies. SMILE ZEMI supports high school students who aim to pass the exam of the university of their choice by proposing an efficient learning plan tailored to each student's goals and learning style.
SMILE ZEMI is a dedicated learning tablet that emphasizes "learning by writing"
It's equipped with a large 10.1-inch screen, the same size as a notebook, and a dedicated digitizer pen that reproduces the feeling of writing with paper and pencil. A palm rejection function, which only recognizes the pen tip and not your hand or finger, allows you to rest your palm comfortably on it and write exactly you do in your notebooks. We have prepared a learning environment that corresponds to university entrance exams that emphasize descriptive formats such as diagrams and graphs in addition to English vocabulary and kanji.
"Strategic AI coach" converts all learning records into data Analyzing not only the level of understanding but also the learning process, leading to university admission with the optimal learning plan.
In the High School Student Course, the "Strategic AI Coach" will interview you about (1) the university of your choice, (2) the target score for the test, (3) the subjects you want to work hard on, and (4) the amount of study time you can allocate. By preparing an appropriate learning plan every day and suggesting the learning materials that you should work on now, it will guide you to pass the exam of the university of your choice. When unexpected schedule changes occur such as a quizzes, club activities, part-time jobs, etc. that prevent you from learning as much as you would like, the Strategic AI Coach will rework your learning plan to help you achieve your goals, so that you can focus on your learning.
In addition to the level of learning achievement, it is equipped with a mechanism that analyzes " where and how mistakes were made" from the process of answering questions, and grasps the root causes of stumbles.
Quickly find subject areas and units that you are not good at, and help you overcome them with courses tailored to the type of mistakes you made, such as, "video lessons" for those with a lack of understanding or "5-minute training" for repetitive learning.
Consolidates three years of high school learning materials, including preparation for university entrance exams, in one tablet
Consolidates all the learning materials of 31 subjects in six subject areas into one tablet, including class preparation and review for three years of high school, regular tests, seasonal courses, and preparation for the entrance examinations. By accumulating and analyzing various data, such as each student's learning status, level of understanding, tendency to make mistakes, and degree of forgetfulness, etc., it proposes the optimal learning plan according to the student's academic ability and level of learning achievement.
And by manipulating the variables of graphs and conducting virtual experiments by yourself, through hands-on experiential work that allows you to intuitively understand complex concepts and animated explanations that promote visual understanding when learning new concepts and phenomena, you will deepen your understanding of each subject area, such as science, mathematics, and history. Since one lesson is set to 15 minutes as a guide, there are many learning materials that you can work on in your spare time, such as before going to school, to enable you to steadily improve your academic ability even on busy days.
As for preparation for regular tests, by registering the annual schedule, the "regular test mode" will automatically start two weeks before the actual test. We will deliver the preparation course according to the number of days until the test and each student's level of understanding. On the day before the test, flashcards and priority questions are prepared as last-minute measures so that you can score as many points as possible. Flashcards come out automatically at times that take into account the forgetting curve, and vocabulary, etc. that you got wrong in the past are prioritized, making memorization more reliable. Furthermore, by recording the test results each time, you can visualize the progress of your academic ability and review your learning.
The entrance exam preparation course starts in September of the second year. The Strategic AI Coach creates a plan of learning and preparation while judging each student's "learning gaps" and "areas to improve" until the university entrance exam. By evaluating and analyzing the level of achievement for each unit, it will take efficient steps to fill the gaps between the academic ability required to pass the exam of the university of your choice, and your current ability. The learning materials developed by researching past exam questions help you develop the practical skills necessary to pass the exam. And, if you want to change the university or faculty you chose, it will immediately create a new plan of preparation according to the additional subject areas and subjects required or no longer required. This means you can focus on preparing for the entrance exam without losing track.
It becomes difficult for parents to grasp the learning status of their children in high school.. "Parent Portal" allows parents to check how their children are progressing toward their goals, which includes the details of subjects they are weak in that they have overcome with the Strategic AI Coach learning plan, and the progress of subjects they are good at. And, since the tablet is able to communicate with parents' smartphones, parents can exchange messages and send "cheers" according to the level of learning.

Delivering the latest information about university entrance exams, which has changed significantly from that of the parents' generation. In addition to tips on how to prepare for the exams, real advice is delivered, such as viewpoints that should be important regarding choosing a university, and methods of collecting information.
"SMILE ZEMI" revolutionized the world of learning as the first tablet-based distance learning product in Japan. We have continued to provide learning products and services that match the growth of infants, elementary school students, and junior high school students, and have practiced "learning growth hacking" by analyzing learning data and repeatedly improving learning materials and learning methods. As a result, in our junior high school course, we have been able to provide learning methods and materials that have enabled many children to pass the exams of the schools they wanted to enter. We have been receiving requests for a high school student course for some time, and have been researching how to "evolve" it to help students pass university entrance exams. As a result, we have created the "Strategic AI Coach". In the SMILE ZEMI - High School Student Course, we will support high school students who are at a major crossroads in their lives, the university entrance exam.

"SMILE ZEMI", Japan's first tablet-type distance learning utilizing AI
This is distance learning utilizing tablets for infants, elementary school students, and junior high school students, which was launched in 2012. While learning materials are on tablets, all courses for learners ranging from infants to junior high school students focus on "Learning by Writing", allowing students to write in the same way as they would with paper and pencil, thus providing a stress-free, high-quality learning experience. We provide children with the learning they need "now" in accordance with their growth. For example, in the infant course, we provide a system that allows children to enjoy learning on their own; in the elementary school course, we provide a learning cycle that encourages learning habits and textbook-compliant learning; and in the junior high school course, we provide a "tutorial-style learning" system that allows each student to learn using the most appropriate learning plan and materials.
