Proposal

While holographic technology is still in its infancy the possibilities remain endless. Holograms/Holographic technology is changing the landscape of how we design our classrooms and the way we educate our students’. “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” Albert Einstein

Holography is a technique which enables three-dimensional holograms. The image changes as the position of the viewing system changes in exactly the same way as if the object were still present, teachers’ or students’ using their cell phones or a tablets can make the images appear three-dimensional. I propose that (S.T.E.M/S.T.E.A.M.) teachers’ that are armed with simple, inexpensive and accessible online tutors or videos that make it simple to create a user-friendly hands-on generated project, that can be integrated into the curriculum of a blended learning platform by using both face-to-face or online learning programs that will engage with a student’s curiosity and imagination. This project allows a student to create individually or as a part of a group and its’ so much fun that it will encourage even the most unwilling student to participate.

Hologram Projector Suitable All Smartphones, Holographic Prism. 3D Hologram Pyramid Display Projector Video for Smart Cell Phone Universal Price: $0.99.

The holographic prism can be purchased on-line at a very low price or you can allow the students to have a hands on experience, by building their own prism using a CD case and some simple material listed in the PowerPoint presentation at the end of this proposal.

 

 

 

Executive summary

This document presents an inexpensive, Blended-Learning strategic plan that provides a “roadmap” for teachers and students’ to enjoy while creating a Hologram/Holographic image in its infancy. The importance use of technology in the classrooms are self-explanatory, with simple online teaching aids and videos that make it easier and faster to understand complicated educational concepts. This project can be incorporated into a Flipped-classroom method of Blended-Learning, where the student can create the project in the classroom than recreate it at home. Or, using the rotating method. The student can have a lecture in one classroom “on how light-sensitive emulsion or used to create holograms” and rotate to have a hands-on experience in another classroom.

Students are encouraged to share their holograms/holographic experience with their family, friends and classmates. This social exercise will bring about a stronger parent/teacher relationship and will improve a student’s academic performance while interacting with each other and their viewing audience. Having students critically examine theirs and each other’s hologram/holographic projects, looking at it from different angles and having them document what they have learned so that it can be reviewed and discussed at a later date. The tools used for this project are easy accessed at any Walmart, CVS or any store that sells arts and craft supplies. The supplies for this project would cost the student's less than $10.00 with plenty left overs, in case of mistakes or do overs.

Project Overview

This Blended Learning project will consist of a one-day video lecture on “How light-sensitive emulsion are used to create holographic/holograms” by Jason Sapan (Founder “Holographic Studios” the world's oldest gallery of holography, located in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. He is one of the pioneers of holography.) On day-two will consist of constructing the holograms “Hands-on”. This project can be used as a part of an ongoing science/tech class for beginners or for a more advance light-sensitive emulsion class. This particular project is set up for one to two days, but teachers have the option to alter the project to fit their needs and time.

Day

Topic: Holograms Lecture on light-sensitive emulsion

Method of Delivery

Project Goal for teachers

1

*Video resources available to teachers via on-line. Project resources are viewable by parents or students at any time.

On-line Videos

Teachers will have the opportunity to engage with and monitor students’ interest, while introducing new technology to their students.

2

* review Presentation

* ensure that all necessary materials are included

* SAFETY FIRST *

Have fun, Create your holographic image.

On-line Videos & PowerPoint Presentation

Teachers and students can discuss the videos. Be sure to review the video: “how to make a cellphone hologram”

 

Some of the materials use have sharp edges, PLEASE PRACTIST SAFETY FIRST

Teachers and students will be amazed at what their can create.

https://youtu.be/BSGDJeI2vEU : This  video will instruct students how to create their  own 3d Holograph:

 

 

Needs Assessment

Hypothetically, hologram/holographic technology could be used to illustrate concepts to all students, they could sit next to their favorite person in history; just name a historical era and you will be amazed. I understand that schools, however, need to carefully consider how a big-ticket holographic tech purchase will affect other district resources. Like any technology, things get less expensive over time. As the price gets closer to the price for a virtual reality system, I expect more people to go to augmented reality. The potential is great, a powerful teaching tool for educator and students’.

  1. project is based on the blended learning models, using the rotating-lab, (via videos) on-line lectures in the classroom, then rotate to the computer lab and on to creating your hologram. The flipped classroom method will allow the teacher to interact and monitor the students’ in the classroom. After class, the students’ can entertain their family and friends at home (Flipped-Classroom method). The benefit of this project using one of these blended learning methods (rotating or flipped) allows the teacher to assist a student one-on-one or as group. also allows for the teacher to be available to assist with glitches, of safety issues that may “pop up".

Final Reflection

Holographic technology will change the face of education as we know it. It’s currently in its nascent development stages and has plenty of bugs to work through, but it still has major weight as an education game-changer.

Researchers have found that the use of Hologram/Holographic technology along with augmented reality will help students learn more efficiently, as well as increase knowledge retention. It allows for learning to be student-centered but also creates opportunities for collaboration, which in turn fosters a deeper understanding of content. A 2016 study found that embedding augmented reality-based authentic inquiry promoted student engagement and motivation levels. The literature points to educational benefits that go beyond higher levels of student engagement and interest. https://theeconomyofmeaning.com/2016/12/05/a-study-about-augmented-reality-and-learning/ “STEM” education will help students develop their understanding of social issues (Garibay, 2015). The video industry has played a major role in embedding these trends into popular culture, by using the (AR) interactive videos games to bring us closer and closer to fully using holograms as a practical, fully functional educational tool.

Students who use Holograms/Holographic technology combined with augmented reality are active and engaged within their educational experiencing, rather than learning through the traditional texts books or blackboard technology. Immersed in the subjects of their studies, students’ senses are saturated and satiated by the use of Holograms/Holographic technology combined with augmented reality presented to them.

‎Although the technology is still considered to be in its infancy, it's already demonstrating the potential capabilities of holographic technology coupled with smartphone devices, and the concept of a 3D mobile evolution being not far from what we imagined.

      What a great idea - I can see this technology being put to use as we delve deeper into 3D printing - students can struggle with the spatial visualization skills necessary to fully design a 3D product, and holograms could be an asset to help develop those visualization skills.

        Kendall,

        I agree with Suzie. This is a really interesting proposal and one that I know is meaningful to you.

        Please be sure to make sure you have covered all the bases indicated in the project requirements. For example, I don't see anything (yet) about a needs assessment or project budget.

        Also, you should include a link to your Powerpoint in the proposal.

          This is such a great project - I made one of these with my son about 6 years ago and we were very geeked out!

          I think my students would LOVE to make this project! We have clear acrylic we use to make maglev vehicles - maybe I will re-utilize some of this material and have my students make their own projectors for their phones and tablets. A cool way to extend the learning might be to teach the students how to make the videos that become holograms. I could see this hologram video project becoming very interdisciplinary - social studies teachers could have students create hologram videos of weapons used in past wars, or the trojan horse, or any number of interesting artifacts from history. ELA teachers could have students create a video of the main character from a story, or recreate a famous soliloquy from a book or play and make a hologram read the speech. For art teachers, the possibilities are endless, and science teachers could have students make cell models, or layers of the earth, or a model of mars or venus or a black hole. The possibilities are truly endless with this idea. I wonder how difficult it is to create a hologram video...
