"Learning should be more fun and radical! - "Learning 3.0" proposed by a workshop guru"


Many organizations from companies, schools, and hospitals to local governments have begun to host workshops to provide training and to encourage communication. Some of these workshops are designed for children to help them express themselves better and to help nurture their imagination through art. The increase in the number of workshops may be a sign that the learning culture is changing from a solitary pursuit for knowledge to a communication platform for many people who share similar interests.


Mr. Nobuyuki Ueda, professor of Contemporary Social Studies at Doshisha Women's College of Liberal Arts, has been studying the relationship between learning and workshops from the 1970s, before the English word "workshop" became widely known in Japan. Cherishing the concept, "playful learning," he has continued to explore the possibilities of alternative learning.


Mr. Ueda believes that learning has evolved from something we do individually (learning 1.0) to something that is enriched through interaction with others (learning 2.0), and now it is about to move to the next level. To find out more about the future of learning, I went and visited Mr. Ueda at the New Museum in Yoshino, Nara.
