Selena Nemorin and Neil Selwyn have a new article in Research Papers In Education. The paper is titled “Making the best of it? Exploring the realities of 3D printing in school” and comes from LNM’s ARC-funded ‘Discovery’ project on schools and technology. The article details and ethnographic study of the realities of 3D printing and maker technologies in high school settings. In particular, the authors highlight the complexities of technology-based schooling – not least the ways in which possible technical and/or pedagogical ‘innovations’ associated with 3D printing are shaped by the situational constraints of school contexts. The paper concludes by considering the likely future(s) of 3D printing and other forms of digital fabrication within the institutional confines of school.
