3D Systems Presented Cooper Hewitt with Elegant 3D Printed Scissors for Ribbon Cutting at Grand Reopening

3ds-logo

Andrew Carnegie had a lot to say on the subjects of success, giving back magnanimously, and the benefits of solid teamwork.

Among its many applications, 3D printing plays the exciting role of filling in mysterious gaps in history, giving actual form to things previously only imagined. That’s the case with the centerpiece of a new exhibition on the tragic 1845 expedition of Rear Admiral Sir John Franklin: the full-scale, 3D printed replica of the ship’s bell from the HMS Erebus. On May 19, 1845, Franklin and his crew of 24 officers and 110 men on the […]

gaming-formative-assessment

Last month at the AESA conference, Curtis Chandler and I had the opportunity to do a presentation on gamification in education. I always have fun working with Curtis and when we get the chance to talk about games, even better. One of the things we talked about was how game design and instructional design are very similar.

The Internet and other digital technologies have altered the news landscape. There have been numerous stories about the demise of the newspaper and disruption at traditional media outlets.
