Educators and researchers with varied backgrounds and expertise share a common vision of helping children expand their horizons and capabilities through learning design, digital fabrication, and making skills. We highlight the collaborative and transdisciplinary nature of these endeavors, underlining the perspective of value co-creation where value needs to be realized for all stakeholders. We encourage all to utilize this lens to continue to advance the field and benefit children as they learn and create.
