3D-Printing

A fast emerging technology in education is 3D-Printing. The innovation behind this new technology is that it allows an individual to create a three dimensional product from a digital file. Also, it allows for almost unlimited customization and it is protected by copyright. This unique technology turns passive consumers into active creators.

3D-Printing has the potential to play an extremely important role in education and although schools are just beginning to adopt this technology, the benefits will surely lead to more widespread use. This technology provides instructors with 3D visual aids and it enhances student learning by doing. It provides students with the capability to make 3 dimensional mini-models which would be beneficial in fields such as engineering, architecture, and biology.
