Materiality Constraining and Enabling Collaboration in Secondary School Maker Centered Learning

Research output: Conference materialsPoster


This study analyzes the active role of materiality within collaboration in maker-centered learning. Collaborative making requires teams to manage the design task and organize their work processes simultaneously. Taking a case study perspective on a co-invention project, we focused on one team, wherein participation was unevenly distributed. While the making task enabled embodied contribution, the tools and materials also limited these opportunities. Neither social nor material aspects alone determined the participation within the team.
