I’ve had a Printrbot Plus in my classroom for this school year and I’ve grown into a big fan of both the technology and of Printrbot itself.
I’ve been talking to Brook Drumm about 3D printers in classrooms. We started off putting together a google doc and looking for lesson plans and unit plans that could be used to introduce teachers to the technology and are printer agnostic.
But I’ve got to admit, I’ve been surprised by what I’ve found. As with anything online, there are a lot of links that come up in a search engine, but what I’ve found is a mile wide and an inch deep. I haven’t been able to find much that is really good quality. But, the internet being the internet, I’ve probably missed about a million and a half things.
So here’s the question(s):
- do have a lesson plan you would be willing to share on 3D printing?
- do you have a link to a great blog post about 3D printing in classrooms?
- what topics that you think should be covered when talking to teachers about 3D printing?
Are you interested in pulling together a resource? Do you have something you can contribute?
If you have something or if you are willing to help by writing a lesson or another resource of some kind, you can either let me know in the comments, shoot me an email: glassbeed at evenfromhere dot org or leave it on the google doc. We are looking to see what is out there and looking for a community of people willing to pull something together.
