Finding purpose for 3D printers in schools - District Administration

Finding purpose for 3D printers in schools - District Administration | Innovative Ideas in Education | Scoop.it

"A 3D printer company with a strong education background can be invaluable to school leaders hoping to help students turn abstract concepts into working models, says Johan Broer, a MakerBot spokesman. Each printer company has its own school-focused offerings. A hands-on learning guide and bundled kits along with a curriculum could integrate engineering concepts with core academic knowledge in science, math, art and 3D printing technology. No matter what printer manufacturer is chosen, CIOs have to do their homework. Things to consider include:"

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 21, 1:40 AM

This is an interesting timeline that stretches from the past and then the present on to the future. What is interesting is that it makes an interesting prediction about how open content would be the need of the hour. What is encouraging to see is that technology will not replace the human factor, at least not the teacher although the roles will change, I guess with the teacher doning the garb of the facilitator and not the lecturer. As far as tablets are concerned, well it is interesting to note that tablets were first discovered by the Ancient Greeks and the Romans. In some ways at least, the future can only be a variation on the present, just like the present has been a variation on the past.
