3D is Not Just for Movies Anymore
Columbiana, OH –3D capabilities have reached a new level in not just entertainment, but also in the medical and engineering fields. Doctors are now able to use 3D devices to view a patient’s heart and find better ways to fix problems and save lives. The students at the Columbiana Schools are getting that very same opportunity. The district has purchased two 3D AV Rover carts for students to use. The carts are equipped with 30 3D glasses that enable the students to view videos and interactive modules in full 3D.
At the elementary level, students are able to use the 3D carts for lessons in language arts, math and science. There is an entire curriculum that accompanies the carts. For example, in language arts, the students are able to work with phonemes and punctuation, and in math they work with estimating, counting, and telling time. Science materials include a sun/moon explorer, seasons, day/night, and orbit. All of these materials contain interactive demonstrations or selections for students to make. They also have a science program that covers physical, life, earth, technology, personal health, resources, and environmental changes.
At the middle and high school levels, students are exposed to over 1300 topics covering math and science topics. Math topics include operations, geometry, trigonometry and calculus. Science topics include physical, life, earth and space, anatomy, biology, and social perspectives in science. There are also simulation packages that cover chemistry, anatomy, and math and an extensive cyberscience program that provides virtual dissection experiences covering topics that include astronomy, botany, earth science, anatomy, mechanical, microbiology, and zoology.
“The carts have grabbed the attention of administrators, teachers, and students and we are extremely pleased with the opportunity to have these available for our teachers and students,” said Technology Director, Jason Martin.
Columbiana is the only school district in the area that offers these unique devices to their students. This new initiative has recently been highlighted by WKBN.
