  • 3-D Modelling and Our Physical Environment


    In response to Initial Concepts, posted by Jesse Resnick,
    in the thread Initial Concepts

    Jesse I appreciate your initial thought on 3-D Modeling of Information to assist learning. I would encourage you to continue to push the forms to become even more varied, so that the shapes become more complicated and unusual - or to allow for greater 3-Dimensionality in the relationship of one form to another. For example, if you consider a scale model of the city of New York,(you may be very inspired by taking a trip to the Queens Museum and looking at the Panorama), takes buildings of different shapes and sizes and lays them out on a map that places one behind another, or one next to another - sometimes with large parks or rivers in between. This mapping of various shaped blocks gives more "landmarks" to remember items by than one single form can provide. You could also consider developing an indoor or outdoor playground that allows the children to learn from a large environment that they can physically travel through (there was a very good project from last year called "lekkees" by Viktoriya Braginsky that may inspire you as well) - you can view her post here: She was working with the idea of learning from a 3-Dimensional Environment as well. I'd like to see you push the envelope on what learning tools can be.
