This summer update has been provided to inform the CREATE community about recent developments and outputs from the eCraft2Learn project.
The eCraft2Learn project will research, design, pilot and validate an ecosystem based on digital fabrication and making technologies for creating computer-supported artefacts. The project aims at reinforcing personalised learning and teaching in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) education and to assist the development of 21st century skills that promote inclusion and employability for youth in the EU.
Only a strong consortium can guarantee the success of such a project. Every partner brings in different strengths and therefore contributes to different parts of the project. Learn more about our Team here: Consortium Partners. The CREATE Education Project are actively supporting industrial consortium partner Ultimaker with feedback and resources around the educational use of 3D printing.
The eCraft2Learn consortium is glad to share with you the latest information on the project and introduce you to the benefits of getting involved in our activities.
TESTING AND IMPROVING THE ECRAFT2LEARN ECOSYSTEM
In the process of testing the eCraft2Learn learning ecosystem with teachers, students and coaches, we have been systematically collecting their feedback and refining our tools and methods. Our reports and video testimonials with the pilot community in Greece show how we have been implementing the pilot, what were the insights from the first pilot round, and how we are working toward an improved learning ecosystem using participatory design.
Feedback from pilot participants and visitors to the eCraft2Learn stand at Athens Science Festival
MACHINE LEARNING AND AI PROGRAMMING FOR CHILDREN
What has eCraft2Learn been doing to enable children and beginner programmers to build AI programs through the Unified User Interface? Here Dr. Ken Kahn explains more on adding machine learning blocks to Snap!
WEEKLY EDUCATIONAL LIVECASTS
Consortium partner ARDUINO has been organising weekly livecasts giving guidelines and recommendations for using Arduino and answering questions from the public. In case you missed some or all of them, check the playlist with all recordings.
ENGAGING WITH THE COMMUNITY
Spring/Summer 2018 has been a very busy and exciting time for all the team in organising and participating in many large scale events all over the world – disseminating eCraft2Learn to educational, scientific and industrial communities. Have a look at our collection of activities – including two recorded webinars and a series of publications to the scientific community – to learn more about eCraft2Learn taking the world! 🙂
It doesn’t end here! We are already very excitied to meet a vast makers community in Rome in October. Join us at the EDUROBOTICS Conference on Oct. 11th and check our stand at the huge Rome Maker Faire on Oct. 12-14th.
