The pedagogical analysis covers how the product supports learning of the identified skills. The student’s role is assessed by four contrary pair parameters, which are selected to cover the most essential aspects on the use of the product.

Passive
Active
The solution provides good demonstrations and users are active creators when using 3Doodler.
Rehearse
Construct
Users practice creative thinking and computational thinking that can both be linked easily. From the lesson materials, it is easy to find suitable lessons for all skill levels.
Linear
Non-linear/Creative
The solution allows users to choose what to do, which enhances the feeling of autonomy. The lesson materials provide goals for creation.
Individual
Collaborative
The product can be used independently, while the lesson plans guide students towards collaboration and peer learning.

The following are the high educational quality aspects in this product.

The 3Doodler tool can be learned easily with easy-to-use controls. Mastering the use is a craft skill that requires practice.
The lesson plan tasks start with the student's familiar experiences from the real world.
3Doodler is an optimal tool for creative thinking and self-expression in classrooms, as it provides good demonstrations and community-based motivational materials.
3Doodler provides infinite learning outcomes varying from arts to STEM education.
A comprehensive set of lesson plans supports teachers in finding suitable activities and hosting cross-disciplinary learning projects.
