3D Learning™ Curriculum

The 3D Learning Curriculum is designed to create a personalized, constructivist learning opportunity for all students – as well as foster critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration.

Problem-based learning with connections beyond the classroom

Research shows that children should learn to investigate questions about the real world. The 3D Learning Curriculum provides authentic, hands-on learning experiences that challenge students to identify problems beyond the classroom based on their interests. Students are encouraged to do the following:

  1. Dream big
    Students concentrate on idea generation and solutions. In this part of the design process, students conceive an idea or problem to solve.
  2. Design creatively
    Students select a solution, then design, construct and test a prototype. In this phase, a design goes through the iteration process.
  3. Do what innovators, creators and engineers embark on every day
    Students reflect on the design process and create a final solution design. In this phase, the final design is presented, and its impact and relation to the initial problem are explained.

“In the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.”
