The Constructionism Conference Committee is delighted to announce that Constructionism 2023 will take place October 7-11th in New York City at Teachers College, Columbia University. This year’s conference brings together the FabLearn and Constructionism conferences, offering an exciting opportunity to share new research, designs, and theories. 

Our goal for Constructionism 2023 is to consider ways we might build the future of constructionism together. We invite you to submit research papers, best practice papers, symposia, work-in-progress posters, workshops, or papers describing emerging and new constructionist media. We welcome submissions from multiple sectors and fields, including but not limited to academia, industry, and education, aiming for transdisciplinarity. For more information about submissions, see the call for participation and submission guidelines.
