Learn how to teach your students to create 3D models for a variety of purposes. Students address Common Core by visualising, designing, creating, and publishing 3D models. This session will demonstrate integration with other programs such as iBooks Author and iMovie (or any video editing software). (SketchUp is a free and powerful 3D modeling application, and it's easy to start right away and quickly create impressive models and animations.)  

Mac or PC suggested for this session.
