Abstract

In this paper we will focus on different perspectives on
digital fabrication and making in special education.
Firstly, we will bring up observations from field studies
in a special education school. The observations concern
the implications of different teaching styles based on
whether the teacher is trained in design thinking or not.
Secondly, further perspectives concern knowledge
sharing among teachers in special education, and more
specifically how to index a digital archive of digital
fabrication teaching resources for special education.
The paper will shortly introduce two of the projects
where our perspectives stems from, and further discuss
the perspectives. It is the hope of the authors that the
perspectives will enrich the discussion on digital
fabrication and making in special education.
