Tomorrow, Feb 27, at 4:30 PM EST, I'm hosting a webinar on using Smithsonian X 3D (3d.si.edu) in the classroom. Below are the details. We hope you will join then. In the meantime, have you used 3d.si.edu in your classroom? If so, how? If not, how do you think you might want to use it?
Smithsonian X 3D for Educators
Join Matt Hoffman, a Smithsonian educator, to learn about Smithsonian X 3D (3d.si.edu) and how it can be used in your classroom.
About Smithsonian X 3D: Last fall the Smithsonian launched a 3D charter collection, including iconic, scientific, cultural, and historical objects. Students now have the opportunity to access, view, and in many cases download and reproduce selected objects in three dimensions. The website’s 3D Explorer allows students to analyze every angle of an object, take true-to-life measurements, manipulate material properties, analyze cross-sections, and take curated tours to understand an object’s context.
About the Presenter: Mathew Hoffman is an Education Specialist at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. He leads professional development online and throughout the country as part of the A. James Clark Excellence in History Teaching program. He focuses on social studies and STEM integration, particularly as part of the recently launched Smithsonian X 3D. He is leading the creation of the initiative’s first education resource, The Mind behind the Mask: 3D Technology and the Portrayal of Abraham Lincoln.
