Maker Movement/DIY in education, social spaces and collectives, maker and hacker culture, and the socio-technical basis of hands-on and constructionist learning. It aims on all practitioners, social scientists, educators, policy and tech makers, designers and researchers .
Maker movement has gained public attention in recent years. FabLabs, Hacker Spaces, Maker Spaces are only a few examples of the many places where people are 'making' technological artifacts. These collectives are constructing tech spaces and envisioning a future. But, what future? This track is a venue to discuss the Maker Movement/DIY in education, social spaces and collectives, the maker and hacker culture, and the socio-technical basis of hands-on and constructionist learning. It aims on all social scientists, educators, policy and tech makers, designers, researchers and students.
The Making/DIY in a STS perspective deals with questions such as minorities, gender issues, empowerment and equity. We are also calling for papers on marginalized and/or underrepresented societies in computing and making, and/or those with limited democratic access to digital technologies.
We are seeking submissions for papers - reflections, ideas, findings, projects and hypothesis - on:
- Maker and Socio-technical perspectives;
- open source 2.0;
- developers/makers motivation;
- implication for theory and practice;
- free software and open hardware experiences;
- STS research and Maker Movement/DIY;
- maker experiences in arts, music, literature, design;
- engaging women and minorities through making;
- engaging STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics through making;
- Makerspaces, Hackerspaces and Fablabs as citizenship spaces;
- civil society, private and NGO actors ;
- hands-on in the developing world.
