Pervasive Fabrication: Making Construction Ubiquitous in Education

Michael Eisenberg and Leah Buechley
Department of Computer Science University of Colorado, Boulder CO USA

Abstract—The notion of "pervasive computing" has traditionally been identified with a focus on what might be called "pervasive processing". This paper, in contrast, argues that the notion of pervasive computing can be profitably extended to accommodate the burgeoning potential of educational fabrication. We present several projects under way in our lab–projects that illustrate how fabrication devices can be employed in educational settings. We then use these examples to motivate a broader discussion of scenarios for "pervasive fabrication" in education.

Index Terms—Pervasive fabrication, educational technology.
