Transcript

  • 1. Using Google Sketchup in the Technology Classroom
  • 2. What is Sketchup?
    • 3D modeling software
    • Inexpensive
    • Easy to learn
  • 3. How will it be used in Stimson?
    • All 8 th grade Technology classes learn technical drawing
    • Used to expand technical drawing knowledge
  • 4. How will it be used in Stimson?
    • During the drawing unit the 8 th grade students design and construct their own air powered car
    • This program will allow students to complete their final designs on the computer
  • 5. How will it be used in Stimson?
    • Because this is a 3D modeling program the students will be able to take a concept sketch and turn it into a 3D model on the computer
  • 6. Why is Sketchup needed?
    • Even though Sketchup is not necessarily use in industry, it will give students the basic understanding of how three dimensional modeling works
  • 7. Other materials required
    • Each class will need to use the computer lab for a minimum of one week
    • Grants can be written to get laptop carts for the technology department
    • Laptops can be used for many aspects of the technology curriculum
  • 8. Future Growth
    • Eventually the technical drawing unit will be expanded into the 7 th grade curriculum
    • This will allow more time to be spent on the more advanced drawing in the 8 th grade
  • 9. Future Growth
    • If more hardware is eventually purchased, students might be allowed to design a product (ruler, car, etc…) than be able watch CNC machines construct it
