Cairns, Darran R.; Curtis, Reagan; Sierros, Konstantinos A.; Bolyard, Johnna J. – Interdisciplinary Journal of Problem-based Learning, 2018
There is currently significant interest in 3D fabrication in middle school classrooms. At its best 3D printing can be utilized in authentic design projects that integrate math, science, and technology, which facilitate deep learning by students. In essence, students are able to tinker in a virtual world using 3D design software and then tinker in…

Potter, Barry S.; Ernst, Jeremy V.; Glennie, Elizabeth J. – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2017
Educators understand that the current assessment-based standards are not going away anytime soon. Performance based assessments (PBAs) are an effective way of determining the level of student learning that has occurred in a lesson. While some multiple-choice tests tend to only assess the memorization of factual knowledge, PBAs focus on…

Squire, Kurt; Gaydos, Matthew; DeVane, Ben – Educational Technology, 2016
Digital games for learning have quickly transitioned from a theoretical possibility, to a hyped technology, to an idea that almost seems quaint compared to advances in Biochips, Smart Robots, and self-driving cars. As a field, it is now better understand what games are good for, what they are not, and in what kinds of situations they can be…
