The “Erasmus+ for the immersion in 3D printing of VET centres” project has been nominated by the European Commission as a GOOD PRACTICE EXAMPLE project!
Below the link of the Erasmus+ platform: https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/projects/eplus-project-details/#project/2017-1-DE02-KA202-004159
E3D+VET is a project involving six partners from different European countries: CEIPES (Italy), CETEM (Spain), STP (Slovenia), Pristálica (Spain), KIT (Germany) and SEMKA (Germany), funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme, Key Action 2 (Strategic Partnerships for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices).
The main purpose of the project is to train teachers by focusing on the acquisition of CAD modeling and 3D printing skills, including them in traditional teaching. The use of this technology in secondary schools will also improve students’ transversal educational skills.
To achieve the goals of the project, the consortium worked on the following intellectual outputs:
IO1: Methodology for defining 3D printing exercises suitable for transversal education.
IO2: Set of 3D printing exercises for VET-school lessons in different subjects improving skills of students.
IO3: Networking community tool for teachers using 3D printing that will contain the set of exercises.
IO4: Report and tools for immersion of 3D printing in European education and training
IO5: Set of webinars about the use of 3D printing in VET.
In addition, four multiplier events were held in Germany, Spain, Italy and Slovenia.
The results provide the user with the opportunity to start from scratch by training in 3D printing with the guides developed in the first Intellectual Output, as well as being able to create exercises themselves to be used in the classroom with the help of the methodology developed.
The project was operational from 01-10-201 to 31-03-2020.
