3D Biology lessons

“Much more interesting than looking at a flat text book,” added Polly.

I was only joking in my Geek chic post for Christmas that you could buy someone some augmented reality eyewear. Well, I am here to eat my hat and tell you that they are already using these things in Biology classes at a school in Reading in England and it is a massive success. You don’t need me to tell you about the article because you can read it for yourself and watch the video. Technology in the classroom is not just about transferring the good old tasks into a technological version , it is about rethinking how to approach teaching using technology. As I said in my post yesterday we now have students brought up on the internet , computers and TV. They have a different approach and different learning needs which we need to address so that we are still the teachers. The students at this school obviously have been finding this an exciting way of learning. That is what it is about – making them want to learn! I have found with computers I am more able to get students to deal with more difficult tasks than if I were dragging them through with pens, paper and text books and with the resources of the internet it is far easier to find texts which suit their needs and my purposes. We still use the electronic version of the book to guide us and we still do our workbook exercises on the laptops…but they respond far better to the interactive versions I supply of practice.
