Abstract:
The project team, in partnership with the College of Education department of Instructional Technology, seeks to purchase five mixed reality (MR) laptop units called zSpace. These laptops combine elements of virtual and augmented reality (AR) to create lifelike experiences that are immersive and interactive. zSpace provides a substantially different experience than AR tablets or phone devices which typically create only informational overlay (graphics & sounds) on top of images or videos that represent real surroundings.

To Whom It May Concern In Fall 2019, I had an opportunity to experience an emerging technology called zSpace Technology at the Educational Library workspace in College of Education, University of Florida. It is an amazing learning experience for me. As a PhD student major in educational technology, I think this is a great emerging technology that may bring value learning outcomes. Although the zSpace technology is based on 3D technology, it has more to offer than learners looking a 3D model on a screen. It can bring up 3D objects in front of your eyes, just like a r converting what they see on a 2D screen into a 3D object, which could be challenging to some learners. This technology also creates a more simulation environment because the objects maintain their engagement. I can foresee this technology been used in a variety of subjects, such as language pronunciation instructions, singing instructions, etc. I hope we can have an opport unity to learn more about this technology and do research with the affordance of this emerging technology. Thank you for your consideration, Rui (Tammy) Huang, Ph.D. student Email: rui.huang@ufl.edu Phone: (651) 605 5639

April 11, 2019 To Whom It May Concern: My name is Megan Manning and I am an Education Science major at the University of Florida, currently enrolled in your Technology Enhance Learning Environment course. This course has expanded my knowledge about technology, hardware, software, game based learning, and so many other beneficial aspects to how technology is especially important for educational purposes. In this class, I have especially been able to see and understand how useful augme nted reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) is in the classroom. In this class I was actually given the opportunity to try out and experiment with AR/VR technologies for the first time ever. I found it to be very exciting and extremely unique. I believe in corporating these forms of technology, such as the zSpace, into educational facilities will bring a completely new aspect to learning. This technology is immensely hands on, which is great for learning and retaining information because it allows students t o be engaged and simultaneously have fun. Please consider allowing the zSpace to be available for students at the University of Florida, as it brings an entirely new approach to learning and education. Thank you, Megan Manning Email: manningm@ufl.edu

To whom it may concern, Last week I was able to experience the magic that is zSpace technology. I was able to immerse myself into a 3D version of a heart, where every single part was described and at the tip of my fingertips. It was amazing being able to experience anatomy in a new way as well as seeing parts of a car I was never aware o f because of the fear I would break my car in the process. The software and hardware were both easy to navigate and I was able to engage with the material on my own fairly quickly as did my fellow peers. The instructions were simple and the technology itse lf was not complexed. To me, it seemed as though zSpace aims to push students to be independent and learn on their own through exploration, a tool to aid there understanding of a topic. letting the student learn on their own which is an idea I appreciate. As a future leader in the realm of education, I find zSpace to be of great use to both teachers and students alike. Students who are in the premed track are able to perform their own dissections whenever they want with this technology, even use the soft ware to study for midterms or a refresher on human anatomy. For a student, let us say in the elementary grade level, they are able to have an experi en tial le arning experience inside of their classroom where a teacher can monitor their work an d engagement. Experiential learning is very valuable because as humans we use our emotions to create associations and help us remember. So, having a tangible experience with curriculum material through zSpace leads to a new and innovative way for students to retain info rmation. Having this technology in our university will allow future educators to explore tools in their fields, it will allow for current students to explore other careers through this interactive medium, careers such a engineering and health science and overall, it is a tool students should be familiar with in the ever changing technological society we live. It is good to be aware of what is out there and the change that is coming to our educational landscape. Sincerely, Lelydeyvis Boza University of Florida | College of Education Education Science Major
