The FabLearn Italy 2019 is an international conference that gathers researchers, teachers, educators and practitioners that work with the aim to bring the principles of Making and Educational Robotics in formal, non-formal and informal education.
Lectures, scientific presentations, posters and workshops will discuss latest results on digital fabrication in education, educational robotics, assistive robotics in education, the “makers” culture, hands on learning and innovative spaces for learning environments, to investigate how innovative educational tools and methodologies can support a novel, more effective and more inclusive learner-centred education.
The FabLearn Italy 2019 is associated to the global FabLearn initiative, that advocates and supports constructionist learning experiences for all children. FabLearn is based on the work of Columbia University Associate Professor Paulo Blikstein and the Transformative Learning Technologies Lab (TLTL).
