Volume Title



Holographic Projection is a kind of 3D technology in which users can see a three-dimensional virtual character without the use of visual technological aids such as glasses or headsets. Current applications of this technology are being used mostly in the entertainment industry, but unrealized potential exists in the education industry for its translation. The adoption of holograms will transform educational instruction, and make a new form of communication possible. The purpose of this investigation is to explore the implications of holograms in education, instruction, and learning and how they will affect the classroom spaces of the future. Specifically, this research looked at what holographic projection is, how it is constructed, technology in education, and how the Gates Foundation is interested in incorporating technology into the classroom.
