Watch how Gaia’s 3D software is being used to teach about the human heart in a GCSE Science lesson.
Gaia’s 3D Viewer is an innovative software tool that allows students to visualise objects, models and environments in full 3D. The teacher can fully control navigation , add labels and attach other multimedia to the 3D models. The viewer comes with thousands of 3D assets which have been developed by the talented Gaia studio team, working alongside teachers. By considering:
- what we want to teach – content,
- how we should teach and learn – pedagogy , and
- how IT can help – technology
we are developing a huge resource collection which is shared by all the schools that have the 3D Viewer software. You can find out more about Gaia 3D here.

Gaia Technologies is using these principles to build its 3D resources by working alongside teachers: assessing content requirements, discussing pedagogy and advising on appropriate technology. We are applying the same principles to the development of our educational ICT professional development programmes and project-based learning support.
In addition to using the excellent 3D models and immersive environments supplied by Gaia Technologies, you can also import models from other sources. This makes the viewer ideal for studying virtual prototypes of students modelling and allows you to purchase other 3D models and use with the Gaia software. You can also import free models from the 3D Warehouse.
