Nanako Ishido is a visiting scholar at MIT’s Media Lab, the project coordinator at the Stanford-Japan center, and the founder of the child education nonprofit org CANVAS. As a firm believer in the importance of creativity and the power of expression in today’s youth, she tirelessly advocates innovative workshops and digital education. In March, an exhibition titled “Workshop Collection” that showcased her child-oriented teaching methodology drew a crowd of over 100,000 people in just two days. She will give a talk on her motivation for driving large-scale change in education, a traditionally slow-moving facet of Japanese society.
