Title Innovative 3D VET for Technical Staff and Executive Staff in WEEE Industry
Product Type teaching material
RECDEV proposes a brand new solution to the training around WEEE recycling, offering 3D training tools.
This project focuses on WEEE and utilizes 3D technology in the disassembly training for WEEE.
The use of virtual technologies and the innovative training pedagogies they offer (learning by doing) are going to lead to the enhancement and transformation of existing training material to interactive content, offering attractive and instructive disassembly and material identification courses to people not used to read big manuals and technical details.
The training material for the disassemblers, will be developed in the form of scenarios for 3D environments allowing the users to learn of the geometry and parts of each different device, disassembling it to the virtual world with less text and more sound and animation instructions, before it performs it to the actual device.
Description The pedagogical methodology behind the project idea is based in an adaptation of the 'learning by doing' method to the singularities of the recycling sector, utilizing the interactivity and the simulation offered by virtual worlds. Using realistic disassembly physics, RECDEV scenarios will simulate the experience of taking everyday objects apart. Screws, bolts, nuts and every single part will be able to be removed by touch dragging in full stereoscopic 3D. Trainees will be able to interact, use and disassemble the object intuitively by just touching and dragging the parts. Camera will be controllable allowing the trainee to zoom in or out.
Target group The current training material targets low skilled workers and higher level employees involved in the WEEE recycling industry. The methodology and tools will be developed so a to be easily extended to other industries beyond the WEEE recycling sector.
