Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2011 (Mar 07, 2011) pp. 884–891
A technological revolution in children's construction is now poised to occur–a revolution founded upon the advent of accessible fabrication and printing devices. Increasingly, children (and schools) have access to laser cutters, 3D printers, paper...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 3558–3563
The notion of "educational computing" is rapidly expanding to accommodate not only computers themselves, but also the devices casually known as "peripherals". In particular, with the advent of a wide variety of fabrication tools and software,...
New Directions for Youth Development Vol. 128 (2010) pp. 25–33
"Educational technology" is often equated in the popular imagination with "computers in the schools." But technology is much more than merely computers, and education is much more than mere schooling. The landscape of child-accessible technologies...
International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning Vol. 7, No. 1 (2002) pp. 1–44
The advent of powerful, affordable output devices offers the potential for a vastly expanded landscape of computationally-enriched mathematical craft activities in education. Craft activities have both intellectual and emotional affordances that are ...
International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning Vol. 12, No. 2 (July 2007) pp. 157–166
Mathematical string sculptures constitute an extremely beautiful realm of mathematical crafts. This snapshot begins with a description of a marvelous (and no longer manufactured) toy called Space Spider, which provided a framework with which...
Arguing that relevance judgments are fundamental to the design and evaluation of all information retrieval systems, and that a consensus on the definition of the central concept of relevance has not been reached, this paper begins by critically...
EdMedia: World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2015 (Jun 22, 2015) pp. 1429–1434
The past decade has seen a remarkable increase in the power and availability of 3D printing for children, and for educational uses more generally. Pursuing this goal, this paper reports on early steps toward the design of a novel working 3D printer...
