Welcome to FabLearn Europe/MakeEd 2021!

We welcome you to the international conference on Computing, Design and Making in Education which will be held virtually on June 2-3 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year’s host is the St.Gallen University of Teacher Education in Switzerland. We are located in Rorschach at the beautiful lake Constance on the border triangle of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Although, originally planned as a physical conference, we are aiming at making the virtual conference as engaging and interesting as possible! We embrace the virtual setup as an opportunity to explore new ways of interactions. Besides the scientific conference tracks, we planned enough social time within the conference schedule for informal discussions and spontaneous meetings. For that, we created a virtual copy of our campus where you (as an avatar) are able to freely roam around, mingle with conference participants, join discussions, held private conversations, or just be left alone and observe. If you’re not so fond of gamification and being represented as an avatar, you can also just attend the main sessions on Zoom.

Here is what to expect from this year’s conference

Social event

The pandemic does not deprive us of a social event! Grab a drink and enjoy our special featured show of the Maydays, one of the world’s most prominent improv comedy troupes being broadcasted live from the UK. During this fully improvised show, the Maydays will pick up your suggestions and use some of the conference topics for an improvised keynote speech. Laughter guaranteed to end the first day of the conference!
