Testimonials from current teachers using the learnbylayers curriculum..
“Lessons are engaging and simple to follow, especially for teachers who have no experience in 3D printing! Lessons can be adapted and edited but in my opinion, they don’t need to be! Everything is already included and ready to go as they include detailed lesson plans and all the basics of an outstanding lesson (observation ready!)”
“I’m no novice to teaching CAD or 3D printing, but the quality of the resources available from learnbylayers is second to none. I have used the lesson plans and resources in lesson observations with fantastic results, the videos included in the lessons really enable pupils to work at the own pace which leads to a perfect differentiated lesson.”
“User friendly, easy to follow, clearly explained and good links. Ideal resource to support your delivery. As a relative newcomer to 3D Printing this has certainly helped my understanding.”
“The information sets the foundations of 3D Printing and explains its important and ever increasing role in society. The easy to follow lessons allow pupils to develop their understanding of 3D Printing and experience the science behind it and the application.”
“This is an essential 3D printing resource for the future of Design Technology. I use the scheme of learnings within my long term planning for Design and Technology. This has been essential for adapting with the new Design Technology GCSE. The individual lessons are simple to follow and ideal for beginners and experienced practitioners.”
