Fab14Edu - July 2018 - Bataville, Grand-Est, France


(Loïc Fejoz) #1

For all those interested in Education, Learning, K-12, etc and wants to come discuss together in France just before FAB14-Toulouse, this is the post to follow and share.

As you may now, FAB14 will be held in Toulouse, France. But right before there will be several distributed events, one of them is dedicated to learning. It will take place in Bataville, Grand-Est, France.

But to make this event even better, we need to know more about all initiatives around the world before sending invitations. So if you known who is doing what about following questions, please let us know.

  1. STEAM – How an object created in a FabLab can help learning ?
  2. FabLabSchool – Which events, machines, room organisation, etc can help education dedicated third-places?
  3. LearningTomorrow – How FabLabs help grow a learning society?
  4. Inclusion – What innovative pedagogy a FabLab can support to favour diversity and inclusivity?
  5. OpenBadge – How to recognise accomplishments and skills done in a FabLab?
  6. FabLabUbiquity – How a mobile FabLab (or better) can favour emergence of new learning practices on one territory?

@CedricBleimling @romaindivozzo @FabLass I know some but which one would you sort out?


(Romain Di Vozzo) #3

Hi loïc, what is the question exactly ? I didn’t get it.


(Loïc Fejoz) #4

Hi @romaindivozzo (and others)

We are looking for all initiatives in Education and FabLabs in a broad meaning, and especially those that answer some of the former questions. We will then probably invite some of them to speak at #fab14edu.

For instance, I am thinking of:

I am sure I have missed some interesting people in the list and I request help to identify them.

generally, these are the fablearn fellows at Stanford: http://fablearn.stanford.edu/fellows/fellows

And don’t forget https://inventtolearn.com/

my 2 c, for the moment, keep me posted

If you want to follow the event on social networks:

Thanks @trox , I have forwarded your list to the program comitee.


(Danielle Martin) #7

If you haven’t already, you should connect with Sherry, Sonya and Nettrice Gaskins at Fab Foundation for their network and mailing list from the SCOPES-DF work.

I’d also invite folks from Maker Education Initiative http://makered.org/, Nation of Makers https://nationofmakers.us/, and Maker Promise / Digital Promise http://makerpromise.org/ as well!

Please find my answers in a Q & A form :smiley:
Q1. STEAM – How an object created in a FabLab can help learning ?
A1. Models and Prototypes created in Fablab using their machinery dedicated to public students’ use, can give the students a better observations and visualization, to many methodologies when found in their 3D structure, which also could give more details than being demonstrated using a video or a picture projected on a board.
Furthermore, it can be used to create new experimental projects which might benefit not just the regular students but the science’s society as well, when a talented student get an access to some of the expensive manufacturing tools such as 3D printers which can sometimes not be present at their local schools or universities.
Q2. FabLabSchool – Which events, machines, room organisation, etc can help education dedicated third-places?
A2. For projects done by students with the bachelor or schoolar levels, CNC and 3D printing machines are the widely used machines, as they dont need a very complicated know how, or driving knowledge, in addition to their various range of applications.
Q3. LearningTomorrow – How FabLabs help grow a learning society?
A3. FabLabs’s idea of providing a community with expensive machinery with a low running cost budget is by itself a great educational innovation. As it provides the students with the machinery part, or as i may call it, the key to integrate and produce the ideas of their imagination and creativity, which therefore will broaden their horizons and improve their capabilities to produce a more complex projects.
Q4. Inclusion – What innovative pedagogy a FabLab can support to favor diversity and inclusivity ?
A4. the program introduces by FabLab is by itself a support to favor diversity and inclusivity, but they can add the idea of funding a successful project if it meets the requirements or offer a real innovative project.
Q5. OpenBadge – How to recognize accomplishments and skills done in a FabLab?
A5. I would like to recommend, to add a team of experts in the use of machinery and maybe some professors in FabLab sites, who can support and help in developing innovative projects, and as suggested above, maybe ad the idea to fund these projects in favor for some equity at the end of the project.
Q6. FabLabUbiquity – How a mobile FabLab (or better) can favor emergence of new learning practices on one territory?
A6. The idea of a mobile FabLab is and especially in developing countries is very useful, as lots of students might not even know about the machinery working mechanisms or capabilities. It can also encourage stuents to start thinking out of the box, or even motivate them to start a new project.

Thanks @danielle7martin for the reference, I will transfer them to the program committee.
I think @CedricBleimling will be our guy that will contact all of those people.


(Loïc Fejoz) #10

Thanks @kayedghannam for your answers.
But currently I am not looking for answers but I am looking for projects or people implementing real stuff, and that we can invite.
Do you have some names?

Hi Loïc,
I think there is a discount for non-graduated fabacademy students and lab managers. Is it true? How does this works?

Regards

Javier.


(Loïc Fejoz) #16

@JavierHernandez1I will ask to the treasurer.

Hi Loïc
I found the answer, sorry for the inconvenience. This link will be interesting for many people.

(Loïc Fejoz) #18

ok great.
Note that the discount concerns only the main FAB14 event, and not the preliminary FAB14Distributed event such as FAB14Edu.

Hi there,

A small document has been written, in French, with lots of pictures to illustrate what has been done during FAB14+Edu.

More over, on 28th November 2018, we have organized a feedback day dedicated day to FabLabs inside schools at the innovation lab of the French Ministry of Education, lab 110bis.

For all French Teachers and persons interested in education and Makerspace/FabLab, we have created a dedicated forum : https://forum.tierslieuxedu.org/
