Automating Documentation Considered Harmful (Some of the Time)


This position paper aims at triggering a discussion around systems for automating maker's documentation in a learning contex and why that might be problematic or even harmful. We first describe the context of learning in makerspace and the importance of documenting, in particular regarding the fact that it enables makers to reflect on their process. We then discuss the difficulties of documenting and the potential benefits of automating some parts of the process. Finally, we question whether these automated features, which simplify the process of documentation creation are necessarily beneficial for learners.
