The power of 3D in education

2016. január 5.Jessica Mizerak

The third dimension is the best dimension! 3D  holograms, images, and now printing- 3D is a way to view things that has continued to fascinate us for decades and still today shows so much potential in a variety of industries. This post is going to explore the benefits of using interactive 3D models in the classroom.

First of all, I’d like you to think of 3D models simply as a teaching resource that can be used in a variety of subjects. Typically, what first comes to mind is the use of 3D resources in the sciences - anatomy, biology, geography - but it’s possible to use them for history classes, mathematics, literature, or even in discussions with students about current news events.

The evolution of the Mozaik 3D
3D is a very important part of the mozaLearn digital education system. Originally the type of 3D models (created by the development company Rendernet were created for visual design, construction, real estate and advertising, but the developers at Rendernet saw a lot of potential for their models in the field of education. We started out about 7 years ago with a modest number of models, 10 to be exact. The developer and animator team grew, and so did their capacity to produce more models. Eventually Mozaik and Rendernet joined forces and today our catalog of 3Ds has grown to 1,097 with no sign of stopping!

Our models have come a long way in every aspect, from design to content to capabilities. They have also come to life in new forms! Some of our individual 3D models are now available on the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android to download and use directly on your smartphone or tablet.

About their use in pedagogy
Let’s take a biology class for example. A teacher can introduce a new animal with photos or a video, start some discussions about its habitats and habits and then use a 3D model to go further, exploring the animal’s anatomy in detail. The end result is a deeper understanding of the animal with the added benefit of keeping students’ attention by using several different learning sources.

A similar strategy can work for all subjects, chemistry is my next example. If a chemistry teacher would like to introduce a new molecule, he or she can send 3D models of the molecules to all students’ tablets, so they can explore the structure in an interactive manner. Afterwards, the teacher can show a video experiment or conduct an experiment in his/her lab, so that students can take the next steps to understand the molecule’s chemical interactions.

How about history? Teach your students about ancient cultures by asking students to explore the Wonders of the Ancient World 3D model and watch the video. After asking some questions about the ancient structures, give the fun task of asking students to open the Walk function in the City of Babylon 3D and explore the walkway.
