Importance of 3D Printing in Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Importance of 3D Printing in Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | eLearning tools | Scoop.it

3D printing is a technology that allows users to turn any digital file into a three dimensional physical product. 3D printing also allows for massive customization and unlike with music and movies, everything that is printed is protected by copyright. One of the good things about this printing technology is that it changes the dynamic of consumer culture. In other words, it turns users from being  passive consumers to active creators.
