What Is Learnbylayers?
Learnbylayers is a curriculum for teachers who are looking to start 3D printing with their students. The curriculum is pre-planned with over 190 resources ready to use that are aligned to FlashForge 3D printers. Resources include, lesson plans, teaching PowerPoint, lesson tasks, homework tasks, CAD video tutorials, assessments and more. The curriculum takes the stress away from teachers who are new to 3D printers and allows them to start teaching 3D printing straight away.
Free FlashPrint Slicing Software
The software used for slicing models is FlashPrint so the curriculum can be used with any FlashForge 3D printer. There are dedicated lessons teaching students how to use FlashPrint so they can prepare their own models for 3D printing.
Autodesk CAD Suite
All the lessons are based around the Autodesk education CAD suite. The beginners lesson pack uses TinkerCAD and the Intermediate lessons and the Advanced lesson pack uses Fusion 360. Both are free to use for education and are loud based. This means that students can continue their learning outside of the classroom once the lesson has finished.
Lessons mapped to Curriculum Standards
Created by Teachers for Teachers. All of our lessons are mapped to the USA, UK and Australian National education standards. They are also mapped to the Cambridge International GCSE standards.
For schools in the USA, the lessons meet standards from 'Next Generation Science Standards(NGSS), Common Core Math Standards and the International Standards for Technology Education(ISTE).' Lessons are suitable for Grades 5 to 10.
In the UK, the lessons meet the KS3 and KS4 Subject content for 'Design and Technology' with links to Maths and Science suitable for years 6 - 11. In Australia the lessons reflect the standards of the 'Design and Technologies' content for years 7, 8, 9, and 10.
