Roland Project Based Learning

Roland’s step-by-step tutorials work seamlessly with Roland software and machines, making it easy for educators to teach and for students to learn engineering, design, art and STEM skills.

  • PBL quickly and easily “educates the educator” on Roland Products as well as the student (great for new teachers!)
  • PBL helps students gain an understanding of the workflow and fundamental uses for each Roland machine
  • PBL allows students to produce a tangible product at their own pace

A Simply Smart Solution!
Fun, Simple to understand, and hands-on engineering, design and art projects promote intuitive learning – teaching digital fabrication to students of all skills and abilities.

Foundation for Success!
Each web-based PBL package contains a series of device specific tutorials to quickly familiarize students with hardware and software – key safety and machine maintenance topics are also covered.

Made for Teachers
PBL tutorials reduce time-consuming prep and planning. They help teachers develop lessons that support curriculums and solve issues associated with teaching digital fabrication to large classroom sizes.

Made for Students
PBL Tutorials allow students to work at their own pace offering students fast results and an immediate sense of achievement.

Confidence Building Projects
Created to be less intimidating than other machine tutorials, these hands-on lessons allow students to learn more, achieve more and build confidence in design, engineering and graphics production.
