DK-Exchange launches 3D learning tools to Euro Educationalists

(Yorkshire, UK) DK-Exchange has provided specialist training in 3D learning tools to leading educationalists from Hungary and Finland.

Representatives from Dabas, Hungary, and the Federation of Education in Central Ostrobothnia / Kokkola Vocational Institute in Kokkola, Finland visited the UK-based Digital Knowledge Exchange (DK-Exchange) to learn more about innovative new 3D visualisation teaching methods.

To further underline DK-Exchange’s international focus, representatives from the organisation will be visiting the two institutions in May 2009 to showcase 3D learning materials to wider Hungarian and Finnish audiences. The knowledge exchange has been backed by the EU through the Leonardo da Vinci and Transfer of Innovation funding programmes.

Jozsef Halasz, Kossuth Zsuzsanna Vocational Training School Project Co-ordinator, said: “We were amazed at the technology available as learning tools for students.”

“It is apparent that 3D learning is the way forward and will engage students and transform teaching as we know it.”

The group of 10 international visitors were trained in various aspects of producing learning materials for use on 3D visualisation platforms using leading facilities at DK-Exchange and Doncaster College’s ICT Academy,

During their stay, the group were given a tour of the College’s new £65m campus “The Hub” where DK-Exchange recently installed a huge 3D screen to enhance the learner experience of thousands of students.
