Teach design – not software
Focus on Creativity
SketchUp is an easy to learn, yet powerful tool that allows your students to get up to speed quickly so they can focus on creating great designs. After all, great designers are what you’re fostering, so send them into the professional world armed with a tool that’s a standard across design industries.
Learning a specific skill set doesn’t have the value in today’s world that it once did. Learning how to be more creative and thus adaptable is what prepares students for life beyond the classroom. When you start allowing more formats in the way students create and learn, they’ll have more opportunities to engage with the work they do and will become more invested in it.
Have you ever seen a student excited when you assigned a chapter in a textbook?
At the SketchUp Video Center you can find instructional tutorials from beginner tool tips to intermediate and advanced modeling techniques.
Let the future inventors develop their skills by hearing, seeing and practicing.
