In this paper we present a pattern language for creative learning, which we named "Learning Patterns." The Learning Patterns consists of 40 patterns describing practical knowledge for problem finding and problem solving in learning are presented. It provides an opportunity for learners to know ways that they have not experienced, but that are known as good ways, and also it encourages learners to talk about their ways for learning in their group or community. In this paper, we show the following ten patterns from the Learning Patterns: Design Your Learning, Making Opportunities, Creative Project, Open-Process Learning, Embodied Skills, Language Shower, Tangible Piles, Thinking in Action, Prototyping, and Field Diving. Note that other patterns have been presented in PLoP2009 and AsianPLoP2010.
