Can we use 3D printing in classrooms? I know probably most of the people are laughing at this 'silly' question. Why? Schools and innovation? Do not match! Isn't it? But that's why teachers are learning to 'change' . Or at least, trying to know what's there in the innovative outside world, beyond 'worksheets' and 'assessments'.

Change is the only constant.– Heraclitus, Greek philosopher
"What was true more than 2,000 years ago is just as true today. We live in a world where "business as usual" is change. New initiatives, project-based working, technology improvements, staying ahead of the competition – these things come together to drive ongoing changes to the way we work".

We look at his eight steps for leading change below".
