Abstract

The purpose of this study is to present the potentials and challenges of learning with electronic textiles (e-textiles) for computing education. Learning with e-textiles, which is based on textile artifacts containing microcontrollers, sensors and actuators, was designed to support youth learning in computer programming, engineering, and art crafting. We examined what factors of e-textiles affect youth interests and perceptions of computing based on reviewing previous case studies about e-textiles. The findings indicate that learning with e-textiles make computing activities more real, visible, tangible, practical, and immediate, inspiring new creative ideas. Finally, we discussed challenges of e-textiles to generate new instructional design of computing education.
