A New Interactive Virtual and Physical Manipulatives (VPM)
Education Technology for Spatial Training
Spatial skills are important in learning a variety of subject matters in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Training of students’ spatial skills, however, has not received adequate attention in STEM education. This presentation focuses on the demonstration of a new interactive virtual and physical manipulatives (VPM) education technology we recently developed for spatial training.
