In breaking news, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) reached a new milestone in its support for educational 3D. A recent proposal to establish an official new Special Interest Group focused on stereoscopic 3D has been officially accepted and SIG3D has been launched internationally.
The details related to this exciting development are concisely cited in an article I recently wrote for Display Central.
Although the above article link covers most of the details you would need to know, let me add several important points here in this brief post:
First, ISTE SIG3D signifies an international level of recognition that 3D has had an impact—and it is here to stay, mature, and evolve in the education arena.
Second, this new ISTE SIG serves educators under “a big tent.” It reaches out to K-20+ folks, researchers, educators who use stereo content, even and educators who focus on student-created content. It also stretches its stakes out to include manufacturers, content providers, and 3D innovators.
Last, this means that an all-hands-on-deck meeting will take place sometime during the ISTE national conference being held this late June in San Antonio. Please join us there. Dates, times, and locations will be announced this spring.
