How 3D printing is changing the shape of lessons

Amy Mather, a young pioneer of designing with 3D printer technology There have been dramatic headlines about 3D technology, encompassing ideas to use 3D printers to make clothes, food, firearms and the parts of a house. It's also making an impact on education, with plans to put 3D printers into schools in the United Kingdom and the United States. These technologies hold massive potential for young people both in and out of school. Schools are getting interested in this "rapid prototyping" technology. However, many learners are getting 3D design whether or not their schools are ready. One of the most illuminating advocates is a 14-year-old schoolgirl from Manchester in the UK. Amy Mather won the European Commission's first European Digital Girl of the Year Award last year. 'Digital maker' movement Amy got involved in coding and later 3D design after attending the Manchester Science Festival when she was 11.

Future - Technology - Will men and machines merge?

American author, inventor, and futurist Ray Kurzweil believes it will be possible. He argues that the exponential rise in computing power we see today will continue to a point where in 2029, machines will be as smart as people. At that point, he says, people will inevitably begin to use technology in new ways, implanting powerful devices that augment our abilities. HTML Tables.

It's not what a library stocks, it's what it shares. The city of San Antonio, Texas, recently announced that the first fully digital public library in the US will open in Bexar County later this year: a library that won't contain a single book. The facility, part of a planned state-wide bookless system called BiblioTech, is modelled on an Apple store rather than a traditional library, but it will retain all the important features: more than 100 e-readers available to borrow, with more than 10,000 ebooks – and visitors can bring their own devices, too.

Ebooks and libraries don't always mix well. Many libraries still mark a borrowed ebook as "out" (and therefore unavailable to other readers) just like a paper book, despite the electronic copy's infinite reproducibility. Others insist readers visit the actual building to download and "check out" ebooks.
