We hope that those interested in research about novel methods and tools for involving children in joyful making and learning using IoT tech will submit a position paper or demo.
The workshop will be highly interactive and hands-on! Deadline extended to May 12th.<http://airmail.calendar/2017-05-12%2012:00:00%20GMT+2>


IDC 2017 Workshop on Make2Learn with IoT: Engaging Children into Joyful Design and Making of Interactive Connected Objects<>

This workshop will explore the introduction in the learning processes of tools and methods for creative and joyful ideation, design and prototyping of Internet of Things (IoT) artifacts. Making IoT artifacts enables children to foster co-creativity and joy in learning processes and to construct knowledge; leading to STEM concepts. Making activities for IoT often have a broad perspective that includes not just digital fabrication and prototyping, but also design thinking concepts such as problem elaboration, brainstorming, ideation and reflection; enabling learning activities that “alternate abstract thinking with concrete doing”.

Make2learn aims to bring together researchers, educators, designers, and makers for exploring how the intersection between the design, making, learning and IoT fields can accelerate the acquisition of 21st Century learning competences. Make2Learn aims to develop a critical discussion about the well-established practices and technologies and how different tool and methods can be put into practice under different spaces such as the classroom, makerspaces, fablabs, etc.

During the workshop a set of tools and methods to engage kids in ideation and prototyping activities of IoT artifacts will be demonstrated to the participants in hands-on sessions. Participants are invited to bring and present their own tools.
