3D a “Game Changer” in Classroom

A report on the use of 3D in the classroom has found that children often learn faster and retain more information in the 3D environment.

The report, released by the American Optometric Association (AOA), explains the optimal uses of 3D in the classroom, including how 3D approaches to learning can enhance teaching and improve assurance of student school readiness.

The AOA said the report is the first of its kind, and was developed in collaboration with educators, vision researchers and specialist advisors from across the 3D industry.

The report described 3D in the classroom as a “game changer”. It found a child’s ability to perceive 3D and learn in 3D requires precise elements of “vision fitness”.

For a growing child, good vision and eye health plays a vital role in enabling the child to make the most of his or her innate abilities

3D vision fitness skills associated with eye alignment, eye tracking, and balanced and corrected refractive errors are also associated with improved overall reading and learning abilities, the report said.

“Good vision is important for everyone,” AOA president Dr. Dori Carlson said.

“For a growing child, good vision and eye health plays a vital role in enabling the child to make the most of his or her innate abilities while learning to read, write and participate comfortably and confidently in the classroom environment. These exciting and bold opportunities in the 3D learning experience are nothing less than a game changer.”

But Dr. Carlson said up to a quarter of students may be unable to partake in 3D learning activities due to under performance of various aspects of the vision system that have gone undetected and untreated.
