zSpace Showcases New Immersive STEM Education Platform for K-12 Learners at ISTE 2014

Educational Applications Aligned to Next Generation Science Standards Create Personalized Learning Experiences

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/29/14 -- Today at ISTE 2014 zSpace, Inc., a technology provider that delivers a new way of learning through immersive exploration, unveiled its advanced, interactive education solutions for U.S. K-12 schools. At the conference, the Company will introduce and demonstrate software applications on the zSpace STEM Lab, an interactive, virtual educational platform for K-12 students. Combining the zSpace platform with intuitive STEM education software provides educators and students with a realistic learning environment and a personalized learning experience that aligns to the Next Generation Science Standards and provides the tools needed for 21st century learning.

The zSpace STEM Lab allows students to visualize, create and experience in ways not possible in a traditional computing environment. The package consists of 12 STEM stations, which include all the necessary hardware, peripherals, education software and training, including professional development for teachers. The education software crosses grade levels and subject areas, delivering standards aligned educational experiences.

At ISTE, zSpace will highlight partner applications including Cyber-Anatomy with CyberScience3D and CyberAnatomy Med VR, Dassault Systèmes simulation and CAD software, Designmate 3D education software and open source biomolecular modeling software, PyMol and Avogadro.

zSpace will also be introducing new learning applications specifically designed to address 21st century learning challenges using project based learning. The applications being demonstrated include:

  • zView - which allows users of zSpace to share an immersive virtual experience with an audience in real time. Teachers and students can present their zSpace projects in an effective, dramatic fashion to fellow students in the classroom.
  • Newton's Park - where students can build simulations, change gravity, stop and reverse time and gather data about the forces on the objects.
  • Franklin's Lab - allowing students to build virtual circuits and electromagnets, troubleshoot motors and ultimately build the electrical components to their own virtual robot.
  • The zSpace Studio and Gallery - including over 1,000 curated models to allow students and teachers to quickly find content relevant to their subject area of interest. Through Studio, students can compare, analyze, annotate and explore rich 3D models from zSpace Gallery or created by the student in other 3D modeling software.

All zSpace software applications allow teachers to personalize activities by providing learning questions, creating hints, setting restrictions and choosing what appears in zSpace learning application environment.

"Every student has a unique way of absorbing information, learning and interacting with new curriculum, especially lessons as complex as human anatomy or circuitry," said Paul Kellenberger, CEO, zSpace, Inc. "With the zSpace STEM Lab, students can explore and examine educational models and learn within an exciting virtual environment tailored to their needs. By putting revolutionary, immersive education applications in the hands of students, educators gain a new cost-effective learning platform and can offer learners an extremely engaging and interactive tool."

zSpace will demonstrate its interactive educational platform in booth #3537 and in DesignMate booth #1233 during ISTE, June 29 - July 1 in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
