Education via 3D technology

Nowadays it is not enough to merely be a good teacher, you have to be an extraordinary teacher. The current trends make it necessary to change and improve your ability. Each year, the education transforming into something new and modern teachers should be flexible to changes. In this post I would like to share the new “innovative” technology experience which is already used in the classroom that had positive results in the United Kingdom (UK). In the video the Shelfield Community Academy is using 3D technology in the classroom. It is the first school in the UK to work with Gaia Technologies to adopt and develop the use of classroom 3D technologies.

In terms of implementing it in my own classroom, I think that “innovative” approach might be helpful to my students. In Nazarbayev Intellectual School there is an appropriate condition to apply it. According to comments of students from the video they have felt excited in the classroom. Also, they mentioned that it can make lesson more realistic and fascinating, that they are not just listening but participating in the content of the lesson.

In my perspective, the main barrier for implementing such innovative technology is the lack of attention by the policy makers to such beneficial technology. It is recommended that people propose such way of studying to the Government in order for it to have a positive effect on the country’s state of education.

  1. Dear Oral!

    Wow!. 3-dimentional science classes…
    It is fun and highly engaging learning experience for our new generations who are born and grown under the great impact of digital wave. In such classes students undoubtedly benefit from immersing into the subject matter deeper than it can be in traditional class merely reading a textbook. Even more, learned concepts in such 3D innovative classes are shifted from being hypothetical and “on paper” to being more realistic and “tangible” to almost all human senses.
    I pictured such class… for a while.. and then, I returned to reality. I suppose to many teachers 3D technology in class is music to their ears.
    However, when it comes to realia happening in our schools, it may sound a bit “off the wall” as most of school resources, from human to classes, are not ready to be changed to suit this technology.
    The most obvious problem can be resistance from pre-retirement age teachers who are not so eager to move from their comfort zones. Such technology means that they will have to change their routine and habits they have estableshed for so long.
    The second obstacle that might hinder the progress is integrating this technology with school curriculum. Since, this technology is rather expensive to introduce, I believe that producing subject-content-rich films would be even more costly.
    Anyway, the video you posted is quite inspirational and use of technology there is something more than just an entartainment.

  2. Oral, thank for your post. I would say, I am really impressed by the way the 3D learning is done in class. I feel I would like to investigate more how it is done in other classrooms. For now my only concern is how balanced is the use of technologies in the classrooms and how it affects students in terms of their psychic and mental health. Fortunately, I could see in the video that the teacher switches between various activities, otherwise, personally, as a student I would “go crazy” after a whole lesson of objects flying, turning, appearing and vanishing on the screen. Imagine, there are three -f our lessons a day a student enjoys 3D learning). Undoubtedly, the approach must be in the current classroom. The question is why, how and how much it is used.

  3. Dear Oral,

    Thank you a lot for sharing such a wonderful video. I am extremely impressed, really enjoyed watching this video. Just imagine, you are in the classroom where everything could become alive.
    However, as Aliya mentioned, one of the most commonly confronted challenges might be some teachers` exceptionally negative mind-set towards new technology implementation in the classroom. They are not ready to change their attitude because according to them, they could not see the positive results of implementing high tech in the classrooms. So I have a question, except permitting sufficient time for resistant teachers to build their professional skills and broaden their knowledge on the technology usage, what else can be done?!
    Best regards.

  4. Great post, great comments. I completely agree with Oral that new technologies can help engage students and deliver content in a new way, but I also think that Aliya may be correct that the costs and the challenges may ultimately mean we won’t see 3D learning in KZ anytime soon.

    Oral, this is a well crafted post. It is easy to understand and only has a few minor mistakes. Can you fix this sentence?

    Each year, the education transforming into something new and modern teachers should be flexible to changes.

    5/5
