3D Technology Set To Create A Learning Revolution In UK Schools

3D Technology Set To Create A Learning Revolution In UK Schools
 

As advocates of 3D immersive teaching tools, the company wants to build on the success of 3D learning in the States and change the curriculum and the way children in the UK learn.

Studies have shown that 3D technology improves test results by an average of 17 per cent and increases a child’s concentration. 

The Californian based company, which officially opened its new interactive research and development centre in Manchester this week, will also locate an Entrepreneur Coding School in the building which will offer 100 free places each year to talented young local people who can sign up for a 12 month full-time coding course, starting in September 2013.

Entrepreur Coding SchoolEntrepreur Coding SchoolThe school will deliver a comprehensive training programme aimed at developing Manchester’s digital content workforce, specialising in interactive 3D technology skills. The course will include coding, 3D modeling, design and development, training 500 students over 5 years in these specialist digital skills.

The expertise these students will acquire will also be suitable for many other industry sectors, such as architectural and product visualisation work, games creation, multi-media design, design reviews and broadcast media. The top 50 per cent of each cohort will be offered a permanent job with EON Reality upon graduating and one trainee will be awarded an internship in California or Singapore. 

Studies have shown that 3D technology improves test results by an average of 17 per cent and increases a child’s concentration.  Attention levels rise to 92 per cent during 3D lessons compared to 46 per cent in the traditional learning environment. Interactive 3D technology teaching triggers an interest in learning with levels of questioning increased and questions asked by those who wouldn’t normally engage. This technology also can help children who find learning difficult such as those with conditions such as ADHD, dyslexia, autism. 

EducationEducationFrom as little as £795 per classroom, any school or college can use the EON Reality software and a library of more than 4,000 educational models across a range of core subjects from cellular biology to global geography. Together with a 3D enabled projector and 3D glasses for students to wear, the school is ready for virtual 3D learning. 

Dan Lejerskar Co-Founder and Chairman of EON Reality, who first used 3D technology when working at Volvo Aerospace as program manager for the Arianne 5 rocket program said:  “We want to bring interactive 3D technology into UK schools as this helps children learn faster, retain more knowledge and improve test results. We are passionate about this technology. 3D excites, engages and immerses the viewer in previously inaccessible locations making it ideal for the classroom.  The technology has the ability to transport students beyond the boundaries of space and time, making learn fun.”
