Activating Inspiration and Creativity The Tokyo International Symposium for Informal Learning in Art, Science, and Technology

November 9th and 10th, 2013

University of Tokyo, Fukutake Hall.

How do people become activated to pursue learning? How do they develop a passion for art, science, or technology? How can we design a life-long learning infrastructure that provides supportive trajectories as people move from school students, to university, to working professionals?

This international symposium brings together researchers who are exploring new approaches to answering these questions. The symposium brings together researchers focused on “formal” settings such as universities and schools and “informal” settings such as museums. The symposium will explore inspiration and creativity from a life-long perspective, tracing how work on children, adults, and working professionals might be connected theoretically and in terms of educational interventions. The symposium represents is inter-disciplinary, including learning sciences, education, human-computer interaction, and psychology.
