ResultsCan virtual 3D models transform the teaching of geology? Provided by Futurum Careers Classroom activity, Video, Subject knowledge booster Description:
Fieldwork has long been a mainstay of geology education, but it is not everyone’s cup of tea. Not all students want to participate in fieldwork when it means being outdoors in all weathers, while others cannot participate due to disabilities, financial hardship or lack of opportunities. Professors Terry Pavlis and Laura Serpa, from the University of Texas at El Paso, USA, are creating virtual 3D models to make the benefits of geology fieldwork accessible to everyone.
This brochure introduces Terry and Laura’s work, offers an insight into careers in geology, contains interviews with Terry and Laura and includes an activity sheet that challenges students to participate in a virtual fieldtrip (also available in Spanish).
