Pervasive Fabrication: Making Construction Ubiquitous in Education

Michael Eisenberg
2007 Fifth Annual IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops (PerComW'07)  
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
