We conducted experimental classes in an elementary school to examine how the advantages of stereoscopic 3D images could be utilized in education. More specifically, we selected a unit of the Tumulus period in Japan for sixth-graders as the source of our educational 3D materials. This unit represents part of the coursework for the topic of Japanese history. Educational materials used in our study included stereoscopic 3D images for studying the stone chambers and Haniwa (i.e., terracotta clay figures) of the Tumulus period. Results from our first experimental class showed that educational 3D material helped students focus on specific details and also understand three-dimensional spaces and concavo–convex shapes. Our second experimental class revealed that educational 3D materials also led students to come up with novel questions. These studies suggest the need to understand how to use the essential aspects of stereoscopic 3D images for developing new models in education.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.

    IS&T's Digital Library is Moving
    In our effort to ensure an excellent product, we have encountered a delay in transitioning the content to the new platform. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. We are doing everything we can to get the new library up as soon as possible.
