To introduce students to the process of going from idea to design to printing, I showed them a video that described how 3D printing works. The printer allows users to manufacture an object using a digital modeling program or by downloading a design from Makerbot’s Thingaverse site.

Next, I showed students three videos from Makerbot’s site about explorers who have used 3D printing to invent, create, refine and benefit humanity. Technology enabled many of these inventors to collaborate across continents. In the case of Spuni, they set out to improve the design of baby spoons. With Zboard, 3D printing helped entrepreneurs make their products by facilitating the iterative process of design. "

I believe this is NOT a new idea, the IB have integrated interdisciplinary topic based learning into PYP and MYP already. As a country-wide approach however this is quite radical.

"Finnish schools are obliged to introduce a period of “phenomenon-based teaching” at least once a year. These projects can last several weeks. In Helsinki, they are pushing the reforms at a faster pace with schools encouraged to set aside two periods during the year for adopting the new approach. Ms Kyllonen’s blueprint, to be published later this month, envisages the reforms will be in place across all Finnish schools by 2020."

"I believe that at the heart of collaboration are the 2 P’s. People and Purpose. Without either one of these, collaboration does not exist. They only work when the other is there. Without a purpose it is just 2 or more people talking about a topic or goal and without people there is a goal with no-one to achieve it."
