My Students

My 4th Graders are the Future! As an educator, I love when they get excited about what they are learning. My students understand the 3D world with Minecraft; I have allowed them to make classroom projects using Minecraft. It was a hit and they learned a lot using the 3D Merge Cube; and were even able to learn about the Solar System and the human body! 3D technology is an exciting, NEW way to teach and I LOVE it! I have purchased 2 merge Cubes and now the students want more. They want to explore more with the Merge Googles. How cool...I have my students ASKING to LEARN!

My Project

Education needs to change. VR goggles are part of the Future. Students can study the Solar System and parts of the body through this 3D lens. Why have the students continue to learn with paper and pencil...the future is in digital.

It's time to have the future engineers and doctors learning about the world with the help of this new technology.

I've purchased 2 merge cubes for my class and it was an instant hit. Parents were emailing pictures of their child using the merge cubes and they are impressed with how much learning is taking place. Students need more of this technology now...to learn for their future!
