E3D+VET, an academic methodology for the immersion of 3D printing in VET centres
An Innovative Methodology for the immersion of 3D printing in VET Centres
The main objective of this project is to train teachers non-computer design skilled in VET centres with the aim of using 3D printing across almost of all the subjects. The use of this technology in VET schools will improve educational transversal skills of the students. Furthermore, it aims to enhance the concentration of students with Attention Deficit Disorder. At mid-term, it will feed an industry that is in high growth with future professionals, students natives of this fascinating technology. With this tool VET teachers will be able to create more effective education.
The project aims to heighten the interest of students with Attention Deficit Disorder giving them the opportunity to learn through hands-on experience. Tangible results make the class more interesting, thus students become more creative and improve their transversal skills. Students are forced to think differently which leads them to be inventive.
A team of 6 partners from 4 countries with in 3D printing experts, academic and business sector, an international network of VET centres, one expert authority in training teachers and one web developer.

O1/A5 Develop methodology for creating new didactic 3D printing design..
Methodology for creating new didactic 3D printing designs:
This report shows how to define the exercises you want to develop for use in the classroom by guiding you through the template that has been developed considering not only the technical aspects but also the teaching specifications. The advantages of using 3D printing in the classroom are also discussed. At the end of the report you will find two examples of the exercises carried out in this project.
