Abstract

This panel will take a critical look at how digital fabrication technologies can be authentically integrated to support learning in the areas of STEM, STEAM, and educational makerspaces. The panelists will discuss 1) ways of considering the affordances of digital fabrication technologies (vs. non-digital means of making), 2) the use of digital design-based learning strategies to support “makifying” learning experiences and 3) alternative assessment strategies that retain the essence of the maker culture. Following the formal discussion, panelists will invite panel attendees to share their thoughts, personal experiences, concerns, and questions about authentically integrating digital fabrication technologies in their own teacher preparation programs.
