3D technology has progressed dramatically. It has become a tool used by many industries, from television to business. Recently, 3D technology has become increasingly popular in the field of education. New 3D education technology has been developed to assist students with learning. With more 3D technology available than ever before, teachers are able to help their students visualize content in new ways. Learning through visualization is one of the best ways to understand a concept. Due to the many benefits of 3D technology, such as its potential to increase students’ interest in course material, more teachers are using 3D technology in their classrooms. Children are familiar with using technology constantly in their lives, and incorporating 3D technology in schools is beneficial to them. Technology savvy students are able to excel, and help other students. This paper will introduce some of the technology that educators are using in schools today.
