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

A SSHRC funded project within the Semaphore Research Cluster at the University of Toronto.

“I made this: Children’s Participatory Learning with 3D Printing” advances a comprehensive scholarly understanding of children’s participatory learning in informal learning environments. 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.

Our recent workshop, “Footwear Futures” was held at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, Ontario. For more, see the Bata Shoe Museum.
