From the screen to the hand: getting started with 3D printing in the classroom
Aaron Vanderwerff is the Creativity Lab Director at Lighthouse Community Charter School. He has been integrating making into learning for much of his career.  Four years ago, a group of his students built the school’s first 3D printer, and he has integrated 3D printing since then.

Christine Mytko is a science teacher at Black Pine Circle School, curriculum specialist at Lawrence Hall of Science, and classroom 3D printing enthusiast.

Why Making?

Looking for ways to engage your students in deep learning? Hoping to hone your ability to help students truly understand what they are learning?

Integrating making into your practice engages students, provides a true context for character development (think persistence), and most importantly, gives students experiences to learn core content and practices more deeply. Making is learner-centered. It is based on Seymour Papert’s theory of constructionism (yes, based on Piaget’s constructivism), which says that learners build their understanding more deeply if they create something to share with the world.

GraphFree is an on-line Graphing Tool for Learners and Practitioners providing an alternative to some expensive graphing calculators and apps.
On GraphFree users can...
   - enter plot graph points manually or
   - enter an equation or function
...to see a graph generated.
Each graph can then be saved as an image to use in
   - a document,
   - a presentation, or
   - a SMART Notebook folder.
Note: GraphFree provides a helpful gallery of tutorial videos and an extensive guide for new users.
For many, GraphFree will provide all of the functions that they need.
