  • 4.83 out of 5 stars

Students love to draw and create (teachers too!). Add a computer to this mix and students will discover they can create three-dimensional projects using powerful, yet easy to learn, modeling tools along with libraries of 3D objects. You will be introduced to Google SketchUp, a free program that is powerful enough for commercial applications such as Architecture and Engineering, yet simple enough that a 3rd grader can learn to use it. This course will help you master the basics of SketchUp and explore ways to incorporate it into your instruction, ranging from Social Studies to STEM.   NOTE: Recommended textbook may be purchased separately.
