EDU 959 Innovating with 3D Design and Printing
3D design and printing has a place across all content areas and grade levels. Using various apps, tools, and design platforms, learners will develop skills needed to fully and effectively integrate this methodology into their classroom setting for their own use and student-directed activities.
Creating and using 3D printing encourages critical thinking and problem solving skills in students. Course learners will develop the design skills necessary to guide students in the printing process through software review, printer experience, and experimental design (aligning with ISTE standards). Participants will also develop curriculum connections with 3D design tools across any and all grade levels and curriculum.
Students should have a conceptual understanding of 3 dimensional design using the x, y, and z axis terminology.
*Participants in this course will have mandatory, synchronous, video conference sessions. The dates and times are listed on each course registration page.
A 3D printer is included at no extra cost for those that register for the course with graduate credits.
