We conducted the social survey and the free descriptive survey taking high school students and college students, to grasp the problem of youth's life and communication in highly informationalized society.
This social survey indicated the development of socialization, such as social relationship or social interest, in the various areas of youth's life and communication. This tendency is caused by the difference of life structure.
Besides, the distinction of communication by sex difference is clear at this age. Female is more active in both consciousness and behavior. This seems to correlate with their interpersonal communication. And the character of change is continuous in the case of female, but it is discontinuous in male.
Many of developing countries are hoping to be an industrial country, when Japan is possible example of development outside the West (Japanese Experience).
In this context, we have studied the vocational educations of Japan, especially in 'take-off period' initial stage of industrialization. Then main industries were silk, lacquerware, ceramics, woodwork and bamboo work and so on, which were almost small-sized, rural and traditional industry.
These vocational schools such as the Apprentice school fostered new generations in local industries successfully. The traditional industry of Japan expanded in parallel with the vocational schools, and could pave the way to World industrial country.
These experience will provide some lessons to the countries in developing stage.
