SEN

Assessment

Creativity

High levels of engagement and the ability to visualise concepts
to give a deeper understanding could potentially have an
excellent effect on SEN students.



Projectors by essence are display devices rather than teaching
tools. 3D projectors however may provide immersive
environments where practical abilities could be assessed.



It’s an interesting development in imaging, which may produce
more creative end result

3D cameras are already here, and
software is being written with greater 3D content
