Flipped Learning Hybrid Cafe session

Internet age began in 1995.   22 years have passed since then and the world has significantly changed.

With the world connected by network, the planet is becoming like one big life form.  Knowledge and wisdom has been stored on the internet and anyone can have easy access to a variety of information for free of charge.  AI has been developed and there is no doubt it will be introduced in different fields.

Facing such social upheavals, education is moving toward an era of reform.

Brand-new type of education is much-needed as conventional success model will not be applicable to children today.

Flipped Learning may be an answer to learning for the future.

We will explore where education should be headed for the future.  World Café, a whole group interaction method focused on conversations, will guide us there.

What is Hybrid Cafe?

World Café is a process for leading collaborative dialogue, sharing knowledge and creating possibilities for action. Groups of people discuss a topic at several tables, with individuals switching tables periodically.  In this event, 2-round discussion is held at the venue in Tokyo and online following inspiration talks.

Educators from all over the world will be expected to join the online World Cafe. You can choose either English group or Japanese group.  There will be an interpreter at the venue.
