The future of 3D printing in education

The future of 3D printing in education | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
In the 1950s, the slide rule was the most commonly used classroom tool for mathematical and engineering calculation, but by the mid-1970s, newer technology – the electronic scientific calculator – made the slide rule almost obsolete. Since then, there has been an explosion of new technologies hitting the classroom for engineering and mathematical learning including the computer, the iPad and more recently 3D printers. Here, Simon Biggs, education liaison officer for Wales at global engineering and scientific technology company Renishaw discusses the current use of 3D printers as an educational tool.

Arizona State Online Students Use VR for Biology Labs

When Arizona State University Online students hit the biology lab, they head to their locker, don a lab coat and gloves and start following through on the exercises they've been assigned, perhaps taking blood samples from basketball players to measure their blood glucose levels, using confocal microscopy to help a farmer save his crop from a mysterious plant disease or sequencing DNA. Except these students haven't left their own study spaces. They're tackling these activities through virtual reality, which means they can take as long as they want, repeat the activity multiple times and get feedback from the software when they get something right or wrong.
