The Literature Review of 3D Printing in Education


3D Printing in Education Literature Review

Use the Carpenter Library website to locate current journal articles (past 3-5 years) in peer-reviewed journals.  I found over 10,000 articles using the search term “3D printing in education,” limited to peer reviewed journals from 2010 to 2016. You may consider narrowing your review to:

  • •         specific curricular areas
  • •         the impact of 3D printing on student learning
  • •         adoption of 3D printers in educational settings
  • •         the use of 3D design tools for student learning
  • •         the overall influence of 3D printing in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (and Art and design if you wish to add it)
  • •         how libraries are utilizing and controlling student/patron 3D printing
  • •         the use of 3D printing for special needs populations, including ELL students
  • •         other instructor approved topics
