I Made This! Children’s Participatory Learning with 3D Printing

In 2015, I was a research partner with the project “I made this: Children’s Participatory Learning with 3D Printing”.  This research advanced a comprehensive scholarly understanding of children’s participatory learning in informal learning environments. We held workshops in a museum setting encourage children to acquire and create knowledge about the individual, cultural and institutional values underpinning both the technological systems used for making and the resultant artifacts. See our recent publication in Curator (2017) here: Using 3D Printing to Enhance Understanding and Engagement with Young Audiences: Lessons from Workshops in a Museum.

I was a research partner with this SSHRC funded project within the Semaphore Research Cluster at the University of Toronto.Our workshop, “Footwear Futures” was held at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, Ontario. For more, see the Bata Shoe Museum.
