The SIG3D Leadership Team is incredibly excited about our inaugural events at the ISTE Conference in San Antonio this summer. Since the December announcement of this Special Interest Group for 3D in Education, interest and membership has increased dramatically! With over 800 members, we can’t wait to see what this SIG can accomplish over the […]
Many of you know that I directed the pilot for the world’s first 3D document camera at our elementary school a couple of years ago. The 3D Ladibug document camera is a fantastic learning tool; I saw great results with attention, learning, and behavior when using it at my school with teachers and students. Right […]
I would like to honor and introduce an incredible educator and 3D pioneer to the InDepthEducation audience. Kristin Donley is a highly effective science and STEM instructor at Monarch High School in the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). Due to her passion, innovative teaching methods and commitment to her students, Kristin was recognized as the […]
This time of year is a whirlwind for educational technology as FETC and TCEA, two of the nations largest educational technology conferences, run back to back in Orlando, Florida and Austin, Texas. Here is a recap of some s3D highlights from FETC last week… and a heads up of what’s to come at TCEA. Despite […]
Is anyone really teaching in 3D? Isn’t 3D just a fad? Does stereoscopic 3D really help students? As I’ve become more involved in the field of educational stereoscopic 3D over the last few years, it has not been uncommon to hear these types of questions. More often than not, people are surprised that the use […]
With so many educational products and resources using the term “3D” in such diverse ways, some may be asking… What type of 3D is “stereoscopic 3D” anyway? To that, I invite the Simpsons family to join us. These three images capture the differences between 2D, “rendered” 3D and stereopscopic 3D. 2D: The image on the […]
Just getting started with stereoscopic 3D? Here is a helpful infographic created by OnlineSchools.org that explains how the four basic types of stereoscopic 3D viewing work!
