Dr.-Ing. Milena Reichel (Dezember 2008)

Zweitbetreuung: Prof. Christoph Lischka

This thesis seeks to improve the individual's and also the shared creation of meaning in constructionist learning environments and suggests as well as  develops the approach constructionism in context as a method to design such environments. Within the thesis a wide notion of context rooted in phenomenology and inspired by current design frame-works such as embodied interaction are used. This thesis contributes through adding a contextual perspective to the design of constructionist learning environments. As a showcase of an implementation of the concept a construction kit for smart textiles andwearables is discussed.
