Abstract: In computer science education, fiber crafts remain largely disconnected from their historical role as models for computers. This risks overlooking a compelling, low-cost context for computer science learning and for exploring human-machine collaborative learning processes. Building on bodily-material collaboration, we analyzed the computational concepts associated with fiber crafts during a middle school course and found that computation was contingent on child-fiber collaborations. This has implications for theorizing materials as active participants in collaborative learning.
