APPLE VALLEY – A little modern technology brings a whole lot of enrichment to student learning at Apple Valley High School’s Health Academies. Virtual reality was brought to the campus when the school received 15 zSpace virtual reality computers. These are being used for the school’s health-related courses.
This technology allows students interested in the medical field to study human anatomy in a realistic, in-depth way. This also helps to train the students in electrocardiography. “We are providing a cutting edge way of learning,” MAHST teacher Stephanie Arrendondo said. With the use of medically accurate software the students are offered a realistic and interactive experience.
The 3-D images of the bodily systems can be viewed and organs can be manipulated in order to provide an in-depth learning experience. With the modern technological advances that the zSpace offers, students can interact and groups can collaborate. School officials said that this approach to learning is beneficial because they students learn by doing, and mistakes can be fixed without material costs or clean up.
“The zSpace is a great way to get the whole class involved,” AVHS student Ashley Overson said. “We are all amazed at how real the 3D is. It’s cool how our partners could see what we see and we could discuss the objects on the screen. When there is a lecture, we can be hands-on and grasp a deeper understanding of the topic.”
