In this paper we will focus on different perspectives on digital fabrication and making in special education. Firstly, we will bring up observations from field studies in a special education school. The observations concern the implications of different teaching styles based on whether the teacher is trained in design thinking or not. Secondly, further perspectives concern knowledge sharing among teachers in special education, and more specifically how to index a digital archive of digital fabrication teaching resources for special education. The paper will shortly introduce two of the projects where our perspectives stems from, and further discuss the perspectives. It is the hope of the authors that the perspectives will enrich the discussion on digital fabrication and making in special education.
