School Fab Lab Educator App Beta Test
School Fab Lab Educator Mobile App
SFL Educator allows you to design, configure and transform your classroom into an immersive STEAM learning environment. Our app provides a set of 3D objects that can be used to aid in the teaching of subjects such as Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Learn about historical monuments, planets in our solar system, the human anatomy, animal species and so much more. Inspire your children to learn in a fun and exciting way using Mixed Reality (MR) to engage them in any subject.
Educator App Features:
– Bring 3D objects such as monuments, animals, and much more into actual spaces.
– Use mixed reality to learn about STEAM topics in an interesting way.
– Take a video walk-through of your lessons and record the things you bring into your classroom.
– Share your video with others
More About the App:
Over the last four years, we developed Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) applications to bring digital fabrication laboratories, known as Fab Lab Makerspaces, to K-12 education. The Apps empower educators to create immersive environments that bring digital fabrication machines into their classroom. Students learn how 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, Vinyl Cutters and CNC Milling Machines work and experience fabricating various objects. With this new tool, teachers and students can design, configure and transform their classroom into a virtual Fab Lab Makerspace using VR, AR and situated learning.
SFL Educator works on these devices:
iPhone 8 Plus
iPad 5th Gen 2017
iPad 6th Gen 2018
iPad Pro 2nd Gen 2017
iPad Pro 3rd Gen 2018
SFL Educator is compatible with these devices:
iPhone 7 plus
We bring mixed reality to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) programs, utilizing Machine Learning and Augmented Reality (AR). Real and digital objects co-exist and interact in real-time. We use the camera on an iPad to scan the classroom, so it can be transformed into a virtual Fab Lab Makerspace. Once the space is digitized then the App user can place digital fabrication machines in the virtual Fab Lab, and operate these machines as if they were actually there.
What is a School Fab Lab Makerspace?
A gateway to tomorrow for the students and teachers of today, with a program of project-based learning for schools that includes:
•A Fab Lab Makerspace with work stations for physical and virtual fabrication
•Development of essential 21st century work skills
•Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) emphasis
•Constructionism methodology for maximum student engagement
•Professional development and support for teachers
The Constructionism theory was developed by Professor Seymour Papert at MIT Media Lab. The Fabrication Laboratory (Fab Lab) was created by Professor Neil Gershenfeld at MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms.
