Reviews and Testimonials

Nettleton and Lennex (classroom management and assessment and education, Morehead State U.) assemble 15 case studies that consider the application of 3D technology in educational settings. Education, technology, nursing, and science and engineering researchers from the US, Canada, and Asia discuss the use of 3D in science education, stereoscopic 3D and 3D virtual reality technology in cyberethics education, 3D apps with iPads in science and social studies, CoSpace educational robotics, 3D modeling in a high school computer visualization class, Second Life to teach collaboration skills and art education, and virtual environments in science. They also detail 3D video production; how 3D can enhance classroom learning experiences through a stereoscopic 3D document camera; 3D cameras, editing, and apps; middle school students who worked on a NASA-sponsored project; developing 3D case studies for students in nursing education; and an online 3D learning environment for a museum.
