Abstract

This paper discusses 3D printing, the Maker Movement and the implications on education. The Maker Movement is gaining momentum and 3D printing plays a significant part of this community. The affordances of 3D printing are discussed and possible ways for integrating this into the curriculum are listed. The power of this technology to transform learning is highlighted. 3D printing engages the act of creation but the idea or story behind the design is what will make it compelling. This discussion concludes by encouraging instructors to orchestrate opportunities for students to articulate a rationale for their 3D designs/prints.
