Teachers and students in Bucharest have had the chance to become certified in 3D printing, under ECDL Romania’s 3D Printing endorsed module. Candidates have been able to follow the certification thanks to the ECDL EduHub, which opened in February 2017.
The ECDL EduHub was created by ECDL Romania in the Veranda Mall in Bucharest, as a pilot educational space for learning and using new technologies. It aims to grow with the development of new technologies and the need for diverse IT skills, as a space dedicated primarily to young people. ECDL Romania aims to establish the EduHub as a centre of excellence for the use of computers by using ECDL modules, as well as learning on topics like virtual reality, robotics, and artificial intelligence.
From February this year, children have been able to participate in free and interactive IT courses, and school students have been able to prepare for their ICT exams. Young people have also been able to explore new technologies, including having access to 3D printers.
Since late March, teachers have been able to take part in a Train the Trainers programme on 3D printing, led by experts in the subject. The teachers will be able to use the ECDL EduHub to teach the subject to their students.
