What’s our common challenge in education?
We all know how it goes nowadays at school and private life also. The so called “Y-Z generation”, today’s students use modern devices to communicate, entertain, study and so on. More and more content, solution and method is becoming digital and immersive, which results a highly increased stimulus threshold. This can clearly lead to attention deficit. The traditional education tools (like blackboard and books) do not pick students’ interest permanently. What is more, it’s not so rare that the children starts using devices earlier then learning how to write and read. So the point is the following: educational solutions must follow the tech trend, and become digital and more immersive.

So what shall we do?
There are several ways to keep students attention high, like making the whole learning process more interactive by involving students into class and faculty research. Teachers should provide not only the mandatory curriculum, but up to date news, interesting articles and discoveries. Utilizing the expansion of the social media in order to create an effective student-teacher communication would also help to keep them in touch. Finally, the most important task would be the implementation of modern technology in the classrooms to achieve a higher level of student engagement, and a more effective knowledge transfer.

How interactive 3D technology and Leonar3Do could help in education?
3D visualized curriculum picks students’ interest, and we can state that full engagement of students makes them think even more. The engagement can be further increased with the possibility of interaction with the digital curriculum. I should note here, that “digital” is an important key word. Why? Because digitization let us visualize anything in the virtual space, which means that impossible becomes possible. Imagine how easy would be to understand the science behind chemistry and the molecules, geometric shapes, astronomy and our galaxy, anatomy etc. by visualizing these objects and concepts in a virtual reality environment and letting you to interact with them. Leonar3Do technology enables you all of those, so this can result a “never-experienced” quick and effective knowledge-transfer.

According to a case study by International Research Agency by BBC news, “On average, 86% of pupils in 3D classrooms improved in test results, compared to 52% of children using traditional teaching methods. It also found that attention levels soared – with 92% of the class paying attention during 3D lessons compared to 46% in the traditional learning environment. 

But how about the young children? The user-friendly Leonar3Do software and hardware platform enables to sculpt and paint in an easy and intuitive way. All you have to do is grabbing the BIRD (the 3D mouse), and start drawing in the air, just like with a magic pen. It is a true plug-and-play, out of the box experience, which lets even children to improve their skills and creativity quickly. So let’s grab the BIRD and unlock their inner artists in a fun way with Leonar3Do!
