Teaching Teachers to Teach with Body and Space related Technologies: Programmable Clothing in Performative Teaching Processes

Abstract

The integration of programmable textiles into teaching scenarios allows the necessary support for world-life in the 21 st century. Therefore, we are going to discuss theoretically the meaning of this integration. We are going to describe a pilot project, where 10 th graders program and create smart textiles, relate to self-produced video clips and an on-stage performance. In the course of the project, active and creative conceptual permeation of commodity (clothes) with digi- tal technology, experimental development and accessibility of new communication and interaction is originated by young people. Furthermore, we are going to discuss how this experience is trans- formed into teacher education. Evaluation results of the pilot project are used as a basis for the de- velopment of teaching modules in teacher education. Lastly, we reflect about the importance of this kind of interdisciplinary (arts/computer science) workshops about wearable media; especially regarding the facilitation of female students at school, in the teaching of preservice students and practicing educators.
