A new generation of artists and designers are expanding traditional constraints by incorporating emerging technologies and tangible maker practices, bringing studio and design thinking closer together (Maeda, 2013. Today, artists, designers, and practitioners have been challenged to research and develop approaches to teaching that balance fine art and design with digital-making. We argue that it will be vital to develop flexible and creative ways to balance the effective implementation of technology and hands-on learning in order to promote the importance of studio and design thinking for meaningful collaborations and dialogue.
