My students need a 3D printer in order to print their online creations. They also need filament to use in the printer.
My students (like most 7th and 8th grade students of today) are completely immersed in technology. They love learning about cutting edge technology, and I love finding new and exciting ways to incorporate innovative ideas into my classroom.
My students truly desire learning opportunities, and deserve to see the real world applications of cutting edge software applications that are available in today's technology infused world.
Today's students are well-versed in a melange of technology. They quite literally have the world at their fingertips! One of my students' favorite units in my classroom is our 3D printing unit. The students love learning about this state-of-the-art capability. They love to see the real world applications of it. The students love using online software to design their own creations.
However, I would like to make this experience even more REAL to them by allowing them to print their masterpieces on our own classroom 3D printer. I would love to literally make their ideas become reality!
My students will benefit from the use of this 3D printer by helping them connect the lessons we cover in class with an actual physical real world example. They will have something they can take with them, physically touch, feel, and show to others in order to demonstrate the process of bringing an idea to life.
Giving students the opportunity to design and print their own ideas will encourage them to think about things creatively, and enhance their problem solving skills.
The students will have a greater understanding of how the process works from beginning to end, and they will be able to see that the opportunities with their own creativity are limitless.
Having a 3D printer in the classroom would facilitate learning for all students with various learning styles-especially kinesthetic, visual, and logical learners. A 3D printer would also facilitate cross-curricular learning with other subjects like math, history, and science.
