3D Animations Demonstrating the Way Objects Work

When students ask, “How does that work?” they can easily find out on the JigSpace platform. Using the app (for iOS), students can view step-by-step interactive 3D breakdowns of complex ideas, objects, and phenomena. The app includes a small library of animated 3D graphics with accompanying text that students can explore to learn how certain objects function. After students select a tutorial, such as “How a Piano Works,” the app will scan the surroundings for a flat surface on which it can virtually place the object. Students can then pinch to zoom in on the image and rotate the object to view it from any angle. Currently the app has four sections (history, science, math, and space objects) with 53 tutorials, or “Jigs.” In the soon-to-be-released Jig Workshop, students will be able to create their own Jigs and share them with the world.
