Abstract

In the current digital age, advanced technologies plays an integral role in defining classrooms where, it takes more than just using modern academic tools in curricula to enhance student’s educational experience. The goal of effectively integrating technology in curricula should be geared towards enhancing active student engagement, team participation, and frequent interaction among peers. The challenge of integrating technology in curricula is in identifying how it helps students to be productive along with being cost effective for an unparalleled 24/7 access. In this paper, we discuss how mobile based technology integration was introduced in curricula to explore upon effective ways to design and develop complex geometries and customized shapes to rapidly produce student developed parts using Additive Manufacturing technology. Also, this paper outlines the application of reverse engineering combined with Additive Manufacturing by the students to expand technology application for enhancing their learning environment.
