3D @ ISTE Update

In a previous posting, I provided a complete list of the 3D presentations being offered at the ISTE 2011 conference, including rendered and stereoscopic 3D presentations. At that time, only one stereoscopic 3D poster session was scheduled.

That has now changed. A new and very inspiring presentation has made the cut: 3D Teaching = Student Engagement in the Classroom. This Wednesday morning panel session promises to be rich in content and extremely up-to-date. You will not want to miss it. The panel tentatively includes three thought leaders in the field of 3D in education:

Dr. Carol Hruskocy. Dr. Hruskocy, Associate Professor of Education and Counseling at Regis University (CO), oversees two master degree programs. She is one of the researchers associated with the BVS-3D Case Study project in Boulder, Colorado. She has presented both nationally and internationally on a variety of topics including technology integration, faculty development for online facilitation and course development, and assessment of student learning. 

Kristin Donley. A talented science teacher and runner up Teacher of the Year in the state of Colorado, Kristin currently serves as a high school teacher at Monarch High School in the Boulder Valley School District. She has carried the lead role in the most successful implementation project for 3D in U.S. schools.

Len Scrogan. Your humble blog author will provide an introduction and serve as the moderator for this unique panel session. I will also provide a brief update on 3D vision and eye health.
