Classroom printers are taking on a whole new dimension - 3D, to be precise. Educators say the devices are changing the way kids learn, and giving them an edge in the work force. 

A panel of experts will discuss the future of 3D printers at Southern California Public Radio at the Crawford Family Forum on Sunday.

Miguel Almena, one of the panelists, is a former Disney employee who now leads 3D technology training for public school teachers in Pasadena. He tells more about the printers and the event.
