Makerspaces and 3D Printing: New Directions for History Learning
The use of 3D technologies in collaborative work spaces, "makerspaces," can dramatically expand how students learn about people, places, and communities in social studies classrooms. Makerspaces and 3D technologies activate "maker-based learning," a concept consisting of three interrelated features: "Makers" (those who are creating and building); "Makerspaces" (rooms and labs with supplies and tools for makers to use) and "Making" (the act of building with materials and technologies).
