Rivers brought to life for GCSE syllabus

During the training of our 3D Viewer  our lead educationalists were alerted to the need  of geography teachers  for resources that would exemplify the changes  down the long profile of a river.  In effect  to test the Bradshaw Model.  Consequently, our studio artists were commissioned to design new  3D resources  to support the GCSE geography curriculum and aspects of river studies at A-level.

Animal Cell App in Development in Collaboration with Reading University

Over the last few months, our Studio has been working on co-development of an animal cell app with Reading University. This is part of a 3 year research project to establish if haptics has an impact on education. The project uses our 3D plant and animal cell models in combination with various technologies including   virtual reality, to allow students to explore the detail of cell biology.           Although the animal cell app  is a long way off completion, we have now used these assets to develop an educational app, which provides detailed information on the components of an animal cell before testing the user’s understanding and knowledge with a series of quizzes.  Although still in development, the response from various experts has to date been very positive.

World War 1 – Virtual Trench

One exciting and well used  environment in the Gaia 3D Viewer  resource collection is the   WWI trench. This  high quality   resource  provides an opportunity to deliver  exciting immersive lessons as stimulus to learning in history and English. To commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World War, Gaia Technologies  created a 3D interactive trench environment that runs on any PC. This Gaia 3D Trench is available completely free of charge to all schools in the UK. There is also a resource pack which accompanies the trench and is based on the soldiers you meet and the trench environment itself. The aim of the Gaia 3D Trench is to provide an opportunity to use the latest in visualisation technology to facilitate teaching and learning of life in the trenches, following different r...

Gaia App Development – Meet Phil!

Gaia’s studio is proactively engaged with the development of apps with its education partners. One such venture is the Tai-Chi app being co-developed with London South Bank University. Bringing together the potential of tablet apps, augmented reality and exercise has been an adventure that has resulted in Phil, an animated Panda that can instruct users on the gentle movements of Tai-Chi anywhere, anytime. If you would like to work with Gaia on developing use of the app then get in touch with the Gaia studio team and get to meet Phil.
