“Digital workshops can be expensive to run, and private digital workshops are out of reach of most children. Digital project-based learning can quickly add up in cost for schools and community centers with small budgets. We explored using low-cost materials and readily available crafting tools to conduct digital play-based workshops. It also encourages co-learning in circumstances where trained professionals are unavailable.”
