Professor Dr. Anne Bamford,
leader of the international Research Agency and Director of Education London was in charge of a group of researchers and conducted detailed studies about what effect the use of stereoscopic 3D contents has on the learning behaviour of students.
A Europe-wide pilot project shows how the students’ learning behaviour can be improved by using 3D contents in the lessons.
The study was carried out in 7 European countries. Students between the age of 10 and 13 in scientific lessons were in the focus. 740 students, 47 teachers and 15 schools in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Turkey, Great Britain and Sweden took part in this research project.
The study shows that 3D content in lessons greatly influences the classes’ performances.
Students who continued with their regular 2D lessons were compared to a 3D project class. In the centre were aspects such as understanding, memory performance and general behaviour during a lesson.
During the study the following results were found:
The cooperation partner of imsimity for active stereo projection, NEC Display Solutions Europe GmbH, was involved in this study.
“There was great enthusiasm in the 3D classes. The students are much too interested as to disturb the lessons. They are concentrated and don’t fool around. I would like to continue using it for future topics as well.”
