The purpose of this paper is to describe the development of TPACK-based curriculum on 3D printer use for preservice teachers. TPACK theory, 3D printing in education, and the ADDIE model of instructional design are explained. A TPACK-based curriculum for instructing preservice teachers on 3D printers and their use in educational settings is then outlined. The TPACK-based curriculum is structured to be delivered in five phases. The efficacy of the curriculum will be tested in a future study.
