Other Happenings with SketchUp


Note that SketchUp is now a product of Trimble. I look forward to a great future with this change in ownership.

White Paper

Extrude your Students from 2D to 3D with Google SketchUp
Shafer, Bos & Lawrence (2010)
AbstractGoogle SketchUp is a free program that was developed for the purpose of creating 3D models. SketchUp can be used to support student sense making through an inquiry approach. The authors first describe how elementary education majors were able to use specific tools in SketchUp to reconcile issues of perception when creating a prism and investigate the various dimensions within a given pyramid (height, slant heights(s) and edges). We then evaluate the software on issues of mathematical fidelity, pedagogical fidelity and cognitive fidelity.
