How 3-D printing will radically change the world

How 3-D printing will radically change the world | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
The rise of 3-D printing will make life as we know it today barely recognizable in 50 to 75 years. But it's not the Jetsons. Not yet.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 30, 2014 3:16 AM

From the article: "3-D printing technology is advancing at a staggering rate. American designers are now working on 3-D printed cars, while in China andHolland, 3-D printers are building entire houses. The first 3-D printed hamburger was recently created in England, heralding the possibility of a man-made food supply."


But...


The hype over 3-D printing, say technology experts, ignores the potential problems it will create. One significant problem is the legality and ethical ramifications of widespread public use. Right now, additive manufacturing (the technical term for 3-D printing) is in its "Wild West" phase, meaning, the laws have not yet caught up with the technology.

 

An example of this is 3-D printed guns. Last year, blueprints for a 3-D-printable gun, The Liberator, were posted online and downloaded some 100,000 times before the State Department ordered them taken down.


So...it's going to be a while before you can use a 3D printer to print you some new followers on social media networks...but watch this space!

Preparing For An EdTech Summer, You May Need This EdTech Buyers Guide [Infographic] | TechFaster

Preparing For An EdTech Summer, You May Need This EdTech Buyers Guide [Infographic] | TechFaster | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
This year while the kids are enjoying a summer off, EdTech advisors, educational IT specialists, teachers, administrators and EdTech buyers across the country are going to be busy with a handful of good EdTech conferences. Atlanta will play host to the largest EdTech conference in the US, ISTE. Texas will play host to the TCEA Tots and Technology conference, and several other regional tech events are planned. Educational Technology or EdTech is one of the fastest growing segments of the technology space. From devices in classrooms to smart boards, to curriculum managers, online curriculum platforms, mobile apps for education, collaborative platforms for students, Learning Management Systems and everything else in the sun, has made the EdTech space tricky to navigate. The folks at Mindshare Learning have prepared an amazing infographic with some important tips for those people responsible for making purchases in the EdTech space. These purchases will directly impact, teachers, administrators, students and parents and have to be carefully thought out and managed. Educational technology can be overwhelming. EdTech purchasers want to get the most for the students that they possibly can but are often stricken with very limited budgets and in some cases, parent fundraising needs to even purchase digital downloads. An EdTech conference can be like a kid in a candy store, but everything in the conference is actually good for kids. In addition to doing research across the web and following Techfaster’s EdTech category, the tips provided below from Mindshare are a great starting point. Oh and if by chance you’re one of those EdTech companies trying to reach millions of educational influencers during the approaching EdTech conference season you may want to check this out.   Infographic Source
