Just a few months ago, Philip Cotton, one of the first teachers in the United Kingdom to introduce 3D printing in the classroom, launched a 3D printing curriculum resource for teachers called learnbylayers.
Over a dozen schools in multiple countries use the site’s 3D printing lessons, which include resources like design challenges, PowerPoint presentations, and 3D printable example files.
Now, learnbylayers is focusing on expanding its reseller network, and just announced that it has partnered with UK distributor GoPrint3D and Middle Eastern premier reseller Cognizance 3D, located in Dubai.
GoPrint3D, also a distributor for EnvisionTEC, is now learnbylayers’ first 3D printing distributor, and will be reselling the curriculum in addition to 3D printers. GoPrint3D is a well-known 3D printer distributor in the UK, and has been working to provide 3D printers to schools for the last five years.
One concern for teachers interested in bringing 3D printing to the classroom is what lesson plans will entail, which is why the new partnership will work so well – teachers will be able to purchase the curriculum at the same time they purchase the 3D printer. They can rest easy knowing that they’re working with one of the leading suppliers in the UK, and learnbylayers’ curriculum reflects national education standards as well.
“This is a great partnership which will help teachers start 3D printing from day one,” said Cotton. “When taking the plunge with integrating 3D printing into the classroom, many teachers have to trawl the internet for ideas and sift through any lesson plans they find to see if it will work for them or not. With learnbylayers partnering with GoPrint3D, teachers can save time and stress by starting with a high quality machine and support, along with a tried and tested teacher designed curriculum.”
GoPrint3D provides 3D printers that fit any budget, and just like Cotton, has worked with the UK National STEM Centre – while Cotton runs 3D printing workshops for UK teachers, GoPrint3D offers advice on which 3D printer would best fit their needs. GoPrint3D appeared at the recent BETT Show in London, supporting the UK launch of Robo. At Robo’s stand, visitors were able to look at several 3D printed learnbylayers curriculum models, as well as receive advice from staff members. GoPrint3D is the only distributor that sells learnbylayers curriculum as a 3D printer add-on.
But GoPrint3D isn’t learnbylayers’ only new reseller – the site is also looking outside of the UK, and has formed a partnership with Cognizance3D, which is headquartered in Dubai.
“We are really pleased have built this collaboration with Cognizance3D,” said Cotton. “With the top branded 3D printers they stock and their clear aim to support education we are happy to work with such a forward thinking company.”
learnbylayers is focused on expanding the access to its curriculum, and the addition of both GoPrint3D and Cognizance3D to its reseller network really exemplifies its international appeal.
Cognizance3D is one of the premium Middle Eastern resellers of top 3D printer brands, such as Flashforge and Zmorph. The reseller also supports education, and as learnbylayers’ curriculum is already being used by one of the top schools in Dubai, the new partnership makes a lot of sense. In addition, the company is also offering a great education promotion at the moment.
Cotton told 3DPrint.com, “Cognizance3D are offering a 10% discount on any printer for schools that buy a copy of learnbylayers through them which is quite a good discount deal.”
This is a great way to help schools and teachers get a really good deal on a whole education package, containing a 3D printer and learnbylayers’ curriculum. In addition the company also stocks high-quality filament brands to complement their 3D printers.
“Cognizance Technology LLC is pleased to announce its new strategic partnership with LearnbyLayers, a leading curriculum provider for 3D Printing. which ensues a 10% discount for all 3D printers who buys curriculum thru us,” said Cognizance3D Founder and Product Specialist Abraham.
Schools in the UAE that are looking to add 3D printing technology to the classroom should take advantage of Cognizance3D’s great 10% educational discount while it lasts; visit the company’s website to learn more information.
