3D models and objects can be manipulated in three dimensions and labeled from a variety of angles and perspectives, enabling increased student understanding of physical objects across a range of subjects — particularly science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). As part of SMART Notebook software, 3D objects can easily be integrated into existing SMART Notebook lessons. Available in 56 languages, 3D Tools for SMART Notebook software will be available for purchase in February 2012 for the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system and in the spring of 2012 for Mac Snow Leopard and Mac OS X Lion operating system software.

The addition of 3D Tools to SMART Notebook software brings even more interactivity into the classroom by enabling students to engage in another dimension with objects. The 3D objects provide detailed images, making complex concepts more tangible. Features such as scene immersion allow learners to enter, explore and navigate from within an image. Labels can be added and remain fixed to an object even when it is being manipulated, so the labeled object can then be saved for future reference. To insert a 3D object, teachers can use the Gallery tab feature in SMART Notebook, visit the SMART Exchange website ( or access a wealth of free content in the Googleâ„¢ 3D Warehouse.
