Learning in 3D technology

3D technology has already conquered the cinema, film productions and now perhaps will enter the school halls. One of Britain’s schools is already testing science of biology teaching in three dimensions!

About the advantages of viewing movies in 3D dimensions know all those who have seen a production - but about how you can quickly learn and understand the biology of the human body using the same techniques know only a few. Specifically - Abbey School in the UK recently tested the so-called Texas Instruments system, from which students can use the realistic three-dimensional glasses to see cell division, look inside the human body, look at the complexities of intestines or with their own eyes see the blood circulation in the body. This way of learning can be really fascinating and much simpler than the fruitless attempt to imagine “how the body functions from the inside”.

British school students with the help of three-dimensional projectors and 3D glasses can see what others only dream of. Experts warn, however, that there are several significant disadvantages of this kind of science: first, 3D lesson should last a short time, so as not to tire the eyes with excess of impressions, and secondly - and most importantly - a significant number of people do not see the 3D image. And the technology, glasses, projectors or good intentions do not matter - so, if 3D technology will be present in the school for a long time, it could turn out that a substantial part of those who do not see in three dimensions will be simply scientifically discriminated.
