My project involves bringing the world of 3D printing to my school. The majority of our students learn best through a hands-on approach and the process related to using a 3D printer will encompass that. Additionally, it would allow for expansion of critical thinking skills as our students can think of ideas for various designs that they would like to see implemented. They could help with the design process, as part of a vocational training program. Examples of items that we can create are tactile symbols for communication, name stampers, adaptations for switch use, adaptations for writing implements, cutlery and seating system adaptations. These are a few of our ideas but the possibilities are endless. We would use 3-D technology to create tactile manipulatives to make content more accessible and inclusive for all of our students, across subject areas. We envision that the 3D printer will be used with kindergarten through eighth grade classes, one time per week, during scheduled vocational periods. Our middle school students would further their vocational skills through taking orders related to 3D prints that our school community would like produced. Orders would be fulfilled weekly in our vocational room, supervised by the vocational teacher, and supported by paraprofessionals and clinicians. Time will be set aside to discuss what a 3D printer does and how it can be useful for the students and their peers. We are very excited about the prospects this technology could offer us and know that our students would be thrilled to see their ideas come to life while helping each other in the process.
