3D printing: A New Frontier for Education

3D printing in educational contexts, combined with 3D modelling and structured activities both within the curriculum and in other aspects, challenges students to be consciously creative. Teachers need research, design ideas and solutions that ground creativity in curricular and technical knowledge to take full advantage of this promising technology. 3D printing is the next frontier of education. Classroom integration will not be easy to achieve, but the path promises to be very interesting, and the potential is enormous. At the school where I work, Agrupamento de Escolas Venda do Pinheiro, in rural surroundings on the outskirts of Lisbon, Portugal, we risked acquiring a beethefirst 3D printer, produced by the Portuguese company BeeveryCreative. The surprise and fascination are constant, and every day we discover a new idea, a new project, a new way to put this tool in the hands of students. Constantly we share our experience in academic events, technology fairs and on our website, ICT in 3D. Some of us have already taken the first steps, and will not give up until we are a crowd. Care to join us in bringing 3D printing to schools?
A Sketchup Magazine desafiou-me para um artigo sobre utilizações do Sketchup. Como não podia deixar de ser, foi sobre o que estamos a fazer com o Sketchup e outras aplicações nos domínios da impressão 3D focalizada na educação: 3D printing: A New Frontier for Education.
