Textile Messages: Dispatches From the World of E-Textiles and Education (New Literacies and Digital Epistemologies)

Product Description

Peter Lang Gmbh Internationaler Verlag Der W

Imported from USA

Textile Messages focuses on the emerging field of electronic textiles, or e-textiles – computers that can be soft,
colorful, approachable, and beautiful. E-textiles are articles of clothing, home furnishings, or architectures that
include embedded computational and electronic elements. This book introduces a collection of tools that enable novices –
including educators, hobbyists, and youth designers – to create and learn with e-textiles. It then examines how these
tools are reshaping technology education – and DIY practices – across the K-16 spectrum, presenting examples of the ways
educators, researchers, designers, and young people are employing them to build new technology, new curricula, and new
creative communities.
