We’ve recently been talking to Ross McGill; an award-winning deputy headteacher with ‘the most influential educator blog in the UK’ Teacher Toolkit . He is responsible for improving quality of teaching and learning with a national profile as the leading contributor and organiser of online CPD within a growing community of education professionals. He is also frequently asked to speak at national conferences and is regularly asked to reflect on educational developments in various newspapers about education policy.
In the article, Ross discusses unlocking the potential of new technology in classrooms including the use of 3D-printing. Below is a short excerpt from the article:
“For the past 20+ years, I have seen technology rapidly evolve in design technology classrooms. Recently, those who teach in the creative subjects will have seen this growth expand into 3D printing and scanning products, inspired from industry, starting to appear in classrooms.“
- SCANIFY offers fast capture and is able to capture a 3D model in less than 1/10th of a second. This makes it ideal for situations where an object may move or when students need to work quickly!
- Scans produced by SCANIFY are in the region of three times higher resolution and accuracy compared to others.
- Being handheld, the device can be taken anywhere and can be used for multiple, portable applications.
- The device uses a simple point-and-shoot capture method which is easy to use than a conventional camera.
