Today at the annual Texas Computer Education Association Conference (TCEA 2020), zSpace Inc. (opens in new tab), zSpace announced a 100% sales increase in Texas of its augmented and virtual reality learning platform.
One of the company’s largest customers in Texas, Longview ISD, is in the process of deploying zSpace learning solutions to about 6,000 of the district’s students in seven of its schools.
zSpace provides more than 2,000 school districts, technical centers, medical schools, colleges and universities worldwide with access to STEM content supporting core academic and Career and Technical Education (CTE) curricula.
zSpace facilitator Ali Worsham, an Instructional Technology Specialist at Longview Independent School District in Longview, Texas, was nominated as the 2019-2020 TCEA Instructional Technology Specialist of the Year for her work in technology planning and curriculum integration through the use of AR/VR. This award honors those who work in technology planning and curriculum integration and recognizes the significant contribution these educators made toward successful technology use in schools.
“I see zSpace inspiring curiosity because it’s innovative and different. Students are engaged with the product in ways that help them master content through new and creative learning,” said Ms. Worsham. “zSpace allows my students to gain a deeper understanding of complex subjects because they can really pick apart all the layers. They can see how different things work. They can manipulate objects and really get in there and look at things in a different way.”
For Texas educators who want to learn more about teaching through AR/VR, zSpace AR/VR in Texas (opens in new tab) includes posts, events, professional development opportunities, and video case studies from Texas schools and Districts of Distinction.
zSpace will be at TCEA in Austin, February 4-6, 2020, demonstrating its AR/VR education solutions in booth 2043. Join zSpace and Everman Independent School District to learn more about enhancing STEM and CTE programs with AR/VR on Friday, February 7 from 12:15 p.m.-1:05 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center, Level 4, Room 18A.
