Innovating in the Classroom with Interactive 3D Tools
SPONSORED BY EPIC GAMES
How can educators create opportunities for all students to have deeper and more meaningful learning experiences? That's the question panelists will explore in this webinar, discussing how interactive learning environments can make for rich and unique learning while expanding students' imagination and storytelling capacity.
As technology advances, interactive 3D experiences are becoming more common, often transcending what we are able to convey with text, images and video alone. Panelists will discuss how to bring this technology to core subjects and explore strategies for leveraging real-time technology like Epic Games' Unreal Engine as a tool for teaching and learning.
In this webinar, you’ll also learn about:
- How real-time technology and interactive 3D can build students' digital content creation skills while maximizing their agency in the classroom
- How interactive 3D experiences are already impacting the job market
- What skills that will be required in an immersive future
