Workshop Overview

The workshop takes place on Tuesday, June 12th, 2012.
 It is a satellite event of the 11th International Conference on Interaction Design and Children - IDC 2012.

In this workshop we want to discuss the concept of digital fabrication and demonstrate how this novel and diverse approach can be applied for educational contexts. Participants will discover and discuss the possibilities and impact of different digital fabrication technologies.

This workshop is intended for practitioners of digital fabrication as well as newbies.

Position papers or demos (2-4 pages following the ACM submission format) should address the design, use, or evaluation of digital fabrication technologies for educational contexts. Papers must be related to digital fabrication and should cover one or more of the following topics:
  •  tools and technologies (3D printing, laser cutting, etc.)
  •  educational concepts
  •  experience design
  •  open innovation
  •  best practices
  •  dissemination and establishment
  •  local and social practices

If you are further interested in the topic of Digital Fabrication you are invited to attend the "fab*education" event (June 15th-30th 2012) with exhibitions, workshops and presentations, and symposium (June 15th/16th 2012), which starts directly after IDC2012.
