3D Printing in the Classroom: An Insider's Perspective | Peter Suchmann | Inside3DP.com

3D Printing in the Classroom: An Insider's Perspective | Peter Suchmann | Inside3DP.com | ICT | Scoop.it

I don’t have time to finish my curriculum and now you want me to learn WHAT? 3D Printing?


This is a common complaint that I have heard many times over my 30 years in the classroom. My own version went something like this: “You want me to become a better swimmer – but I just want to keep treading water so that I don’t drown”. Every teacher will understand and perhaps relate to this statement.

 

When one is dedicated to their students and to their profession, teaching is a very difficult job. It can be quite overwhelming learning new attendance systems, new grading systems, new presentation systems and new technologies. Adding to the stress of it all, there are also many changes teachers have to contend with such as new standards, new evaluation protocols and changing attitudes about teachers.

 

Over the years, I have seen many technologies come and go, change and improve. Early on I remember mimeograph machines, VHS tapes, laser disks, Net TV’s and then all the new computer and presentation systems that came and went over the years. All of this was necessary to my skillset and had to be learned on my own time.


Now that I am retired and working as a consultant and professional development provider, I find myself on the other side of the fence. I find myself saying to lots of teachers: “I know how difficult your job is, how little time you have, how stressed out you are, but here I am to make your job more enjoyable, more productive and more relevant to your students and their future career paths.”  Now, I am training teachers to accept, enjoy and master 3D digital design, scanning and printing as a useful and very promising teaching tool that they need to learn.

 

I am convinced that 3D printing is as important to current educational methods as the internet and the computer is and that the career paths it can promote are real and worth pursuing. I see the same old anguish on the teachers’ faces. Many are unsure how they will it as part of their curriculum and within their classroom. How will they find time to incorporate this new method of instruction? When will they learn the skills they need to become proficient at it so that they can teach their students with confidence and clarity?

 

I have always had an affinity for interdisciplinary projects, but I was always concerned about the shortage of planning time that enabled these kinds of experiences to occur naturally and comfortably. As a teacher of a Regents Science class, it was always a struggle to find new and exciting ideas that I could squeeze into the curriculum without sacrificing time for a required topic that had to be covered thoroughly for the all important exam at the end of the year.
