Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Our students often post things on social media without thinking of the consequences. Personal Branding lessons force them to think about themselves and the messages they are sending when using social media. This lesson puts the emphasis on the students. The promise of creating a 3D printable logo for themselves spurs them to complete the process when it gets difficult to look at themselves honestly.


Attendees will take away a lesson plan that includes models, examples, Google Documents, links to free design software, and YouTube Videos via a wiki that will make it easy for them to replicate this lesson in their library or classroom even if they do not have access to a 3D printer. A Micro 3D printer will be part of the display printing student logos. QR codes leading to useful documents and printed examples and 3D Printing files will be included in the display.
