3D Printing Technology: New Ways of Teaching, New Modes of Learning

Principal Investigator (May- August 2016). The goal of this project is explore the affordances of a 3D drawing (printing) environment in the learning of school mathematics, upon which to provide some speculations of how this may help to open new curriculum possibilities in mathematics.

Funded by Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Post-doctoral Fellowship ($80,000 CAD). Funding awarded for full-time post-doctoral research (Dr. Oi-Lam Ng) at University of Calgary.
