Mixed reality and 3D enhancements are designed to make teaching and learning even more interactive and engaging
SMART Technologies, the global leader in the interactive whiteboard product category and a leading provider of collaboration solutions, will be demonstrating the successful incorporation of new mixed reality tools with interactive whiteboards, including the manipulation of 3D images, for the first time in the Middle East, at GITEX 2011.
Mixed reality and 3D enhancements are designed to make teaching and learning even more interactive and engaging. The mixed reality tools enable teachers and students to engage with mixed reality content by manipulating 3D images in a SMART Notebook lesson. They can also highlight parts of a 3D image using 3D labels that remain fixed to the designated point, even when the image is rotated and manipulated.
Teachers can currently access thousands of digital resources from the Google 3D Warehouse and, they will also have access to a library of 3D content via the SMART Exchange website.
“ICT deployment and the use of interactive whiteboards is increasingly becoming a staple in schools across the Middle East and the incorporation of 3D images and mixed reality is the logical next step. Studies have shown that the use of interactive whiteboards, especially when supplemented with digital resources, lead to improved student learning outcomes and we are pleased to be at the forefront of the ICT revolution,” commented Aaron Fright, Area Manager, SMART Technologies Middle East.
SMART Technologies will be located at Stand A3-1, Hall 3 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 9th – 13th October 2011.
