FabLab@School: From Digital Literacy to Design Bildung

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskning

Digital fabrication is becoming commonplace in the educational systems. As has often been stated, it offers opportunities for strengthening the digital literacy for future generations. In this paper we take the argument further - claiming the need for a design bildung perspective on digital fabrication. In doing so, we emphasize the designerly thinking inherent in digital fabrication. Seeing this in a bildung perspective emphasizes the need for such knowledge, skills and competences for all citizens of the near future. The implications of taking a design bildung perspective on digital fabrication are stated here as an increased focus on solving real-world problems, on technology as a material, on the ability and motivation to act designerly and on integrating the entire process of design (e.g. early ideation, co-design activities and prototyping) into the scope of digital fabrication in education.
