Children:MAKE – Promotion of Children’s Rights through Soft Power and Making
Conference poster, 2016

In this paper we will focus on a dual model of engagement in order to globally establish digital fabrication and making in education. We believe that digital fabrication and making in education will not spread and grow roots within the broad educational system without changes in policy on national and international level. We strive to expand the understanding of establishing digital fabrication and making in education by discussing the implications of a dual model of engagement through a case study. It is further the hope of the authors that the example will serve as inspiration to others, and may ultimately lead to better integration of digital fabrication in education in a global context.
