((kirsten joyce)) technology transforming one valley classroom, with a virtu another class transformed into a magical learning environment, in today's "what's cool at school" recap. ((brian loftus)) at fitzgerald elementary, something special has arrived, inspiring hands-on learning, stirring curiosity, and increasing collaboration. it is called z-space, a virtual reality learning experience. fred watson principal "in the next couple of decades, more than 80 percent of jobs will involve technology - so really my goal was to not only prepare our students for
6:10 am
careers, but to teach them 21st century skills." ((brian loftus)) fitzgerald has 12 new computers, 3-d goggles, and a stylus....and beyond the revolutionary technology, it's collaboration that is a crucial lesson. this is fully interactive, with kids using the stylus to pull, spin, move, and rotate a frog.....in this 21st century version of dissecting a frog.... joe bustillos zspace lab educator "i think the biggest part of its studente them to see hands-on student engagement that really gets them excited to be here." ((brian loftus)) z-space has a lack of limitations, and creates an immersive experience.... nakiya buford 3rd grade "we would go to the butterfuly patch, and we got to hear all the butterfiles....we got to hear some caterpillars.....and the caterpillars started singing!" fred watson principal "if students aren't learning the way you teach, you need to teach the way they learn." ((brian loftus)) down the rabbit-hole with
6:11 am
classroom environment is transformed to something out of the pages of "alice's adventures in wonderland." in addition to "alice," fertitta students also learn in the creative settings of rooms based on "jurassic world" and "harry potter." keri carter teacher "they take their whole room and transfer them, so the students can come in and are still learning content within their grade level, but within this great environment." ((brian loftus)) the idea is increase student engagement, inspire creativity, and present an environment where students feel happy "i felt more comfortable because it's like something different that i've never tried, and so when i try different things, my mind gets comforted." melinda taffanelli 6th grade "i like to share what i think about my thoughts, and how i feel." ((brian loftus)) this is a building block - students supporting opinions, with evidence from the book, and the kids do seem swept into a new world, as they turn the table on the traditional study of the classic lewis carroll novel... keri carter teacher "this is why i do this. my passion is teaching, and i
6:12 am
are getting it, and also having fun, at the same time." ((brian loftus)) and that's what's cool at school brian loftus at 8 news now.
