Developing Spatial Reasoning in 3D
Recent research has highlighted the important role that spatial reasoning skills contribute to future success in STEM learning, and STEM based careers. 3D modelling is widely accepted as a great way to improve students’ spatial skills and engage them in spatial reasoning. In this hands-on workshop we will unpack what spatial reasoning is, how we can embed spatial reasoning experiences into STEM learning and test out our own spatial reasoning skills with strategies that can easily be adapted to the classroom. Participants will need to bring along a tablet or laptop with Makers Empire’s 3D modelling software installed – see instructions below.
