This assignment will examine how 3D-design and a 3D-printer can be used as an educational tool in practice-orientated learning. The advantages and disadvantages by the use of a 3D-printer in the classroom will be discussed in the light of RealDreams workshop at Tre Falke Middle School. We will emphasize both the students and teachers views on the 3D-printer and technology in general. The ratio to other technologies is mentioned because we throughout the assignment enlighten the digital culture and the digital generation.
The assignment includes the social perspective in the relevance of A New Culture of Learning by Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown. The 3D-printer is a tool to create a balance between the traditional education system and the modern.
On the basis of our qualitative methods, we can conclude that 3D-printing and practice-oriented learning is useful, since it opens new opportunities for the students to create a experimental environment. This tool makes it easier for them to relate to the daily education.
