Having a 3D printer in your school is fabulous, but how can you use it within an integrated curriculum approach that is used to inspire, learn and share with others?
Using Technology Better has partnered with 3D Printing systems to bring you a unique 3D printing day. Register 5 teachers and you’ll get a free 3D printer! Teachers everywhere are realising the potential of making cross curricula links and equipping their students with important digital learning skills. A 3D printer open up a world of authentic learning opportunities for your students.
This training is not all about the certification though! It will be a rich, hands on experience with lots of ideas about how you can implement G Suite effectively in your classroom and school.
During this two day course you will:
- Unbox a 3D printer and learn how to set it up correctly for use in your school.
- Understand the hazards of working with 3D printer materials and how to operate your printer safely.
- Discover how you can integrate 3D printing projects across the curriculum.
- Develop your students as creative, communicative, collaborative and critical thinkers.
- Get hands on with and design a 3D model that can be printed.
- Explore aspects of the Digital Curriculum and develop a Learning Program using a range of low to high tech tools and digital technologies.
Our motto is ‘No more boring workshops!’
