Abstract: In many countries, crafts and making can be more often found in informal environments than in schools. However, in some of the North European schools, for example, craft is still a vigorous school subject that includes designing and constructing products using digital and traditional techniques, whereas in some countries it might be blended into nearby disciplines (e.g., the visual arts, design, or technology). Craft’s new approaches, like invention pedagogy, maker culture, out-of-school learning, coding and robotics, and interdisciplinary pedagogy (STEAM-based approaches, for example) are gaining ground in schools and curricula, encouraging students to innovate, collaborate in knowledge-creating, and learn by making (Blikstein, Seitamaa-Hakkarainen, and Hakkarainen; Karppinen et al. “Interdisciplinary Integration”; Kallunki et al.). Interdisciplinary pedagogy also highlights a variety of physical learning spaces, and use of what is locally available is welcome and recommended (e.g., Finnish National Core Curriculum; Wilenius 170; Lipponen and Rönnholm 64).
