Introducing Tinkercad Lesson Plans Today, we’re excited to announce a new section of the Tinkercad website dedicated to providing free, standards-aligned lesson plans that have been shaped and vetted by educators just like you. Instruction has always been a cornerstone of Tinkercad. From the moment a student signs on, our self-paced, interactive guides make it easy for them to get started in 3D design. But after a student learns the basics, what comes next? Teachers tell us that they often struggle with how to leverage their students’ newfound Tinkercad skills into larger lessons that meet academic standards. By adding a curated selection of free lesson plans to our growing collection of learning tools, we hope our community of educators will feel more supported and empowered, especially with today's challenges of distance education.

Personal Digital Skills Courses - The Education and Training Foundation Improving your personal digital skills and applying these skills in teaching and learning. We all need to keep our digital skills up to date, for our own personal use, to operate more effectively in our jobs and to help improve the digital skills of our learners. We are stronger in the areas that we practise regularly and not so confident with digital skills that we use less often. There is a need for us to support our learners consistently to develop and use a wide range of digital skills. There is also a need for us to use our digital skills to support delivery of our learning programmes.
