Rescheduling: Seminar in Osaka

CANCELED - to be rescheduled for autumn 2011
Osaka University of Electrocommunications
Seminar on Playful Learning and creative use of Media
Students - guest listeners very welcome, but RSVP!

Whether you study English or Java, Physics or Business: What is the best way to study?

Does the answer depend on the age of the student? On the subject studied, personal preference (genetic or learned)?
Which obstacles lead to these differences? Can digital media help us overcome those obstacles?

This seminar is NOT a philosophical talk about these question, but rather a hands-on journey to look at modern technology through childrens' eyes. We will particularly focus on some tools developed at the MIT Media Lab's "Lifelong Kindergarten" laboratory. If you have a notebook computer, please bring it along for a hands-on exercise.
