3D Printing Where to begin.

Most campuses have a 3D printer, either in the Learning Commons area (Library), or in a Technology Education
classroom. 3D printing is exciting and students want to design and print, quickly.  We need to help them realize that not all "creations" need, nor can, be printed.  Glenhope Elementary has come up with a great process for students who would like to print a 3D object/creation.  Students must submit a persuasive letter explaining why they would like to use the 3D printer.   More information can be found at: http://gatorzread.weebly .com/3d-printing-ideas.html

Depending on the type of 3D printer you have, you may want to have a sign/poster indicating safety precautions and/or instructions for printing. A few examples may be:

Jumble by Kahoot

Kahoot has been around for a while and is an engaging tool for formative assessments in the classroom. Kahoot recently added a new feature called Jumble.

When playing a Kahoot Jumble, participants are given a question with four choices.  Here are some sample questions I created:

(Play Equation Builder to see more math examples. Many of these examples require a deep understanding of the concepts in order to solve!)
Once the question is displayed, participants must place answer tiles in the correct order by dragging the answer choice onto a grid.
