Abstract
The notion of "pervasive computing" has traditionally been identified with a focus on what might be
called "pervasive processing". This paper, in contrast, argues that the notion of pervasive computing
can be profitably extended to accommodate the burgeoning potential of educational fabrication. We
present several projects under way in our lab–projects that illustrate how fabrication devices can be
employed in educational settings. We then use these examples to motivate a broader discussion of
scenarios for "pervasive fabrication" in education.
