Abstract

This poster session will showcase the educational uses of the digital fabrication process, an affordable, student-friendly design technology. Digital fabrication can be used to make meaningful objects out of paper, vinyl, and thin-media. The focus of this poster is to share research and learning outcomes which developed into standards-based, interdisciplinary lesson units that can transition students from consumers to creators of meaning. Findings from a research study will be highlighted, which indicate interdisciplinary connections with art, language arts, mathematics, science, and technology. Both the mental and physical applications of visual-reasoning ability will be explored to show how students analyzed and created meaningful objects, such as pop-ups and paper sculpture. Implications for a variety of curricula will be explored to connect multiple forms of literacy.
