The digital 3D content is devoted to social sciences highlighting geography and its integral parts such as its natural, social and economic aspects and also their global context. The 3D interactive platform is based on the concept of a shopping center.
In this program, all goods, whatever purpose they may serve, are related to geography. In this case they are related to raw materials, their extraction, transportation, export and import, the geographical distribution of production sites, the historical circumstances, cultural context and omnipresent globalization.
The content of the digital learning and teaching tool includes a sample of all levels of geography: local Lithuanian realities, the Baltic region and the world. The idea of the shopping center is to unite everything into one whole in which the abundance and variety of goods makes it similar to a data collection which can be split into separate components at all levels of geography. Students can form the overall understanding of global causes, processes and their integration. They can appreciate the learning experience and use their ability to learn geography through the everyday practices.
The digital learning tool consists of 15 learning objects (the goods shelves) for deeper knowledge. You can find cartographic and statistical visuals and other illustrations there.
The student will be able to “move” in the shopping center created as a 3D environment. Having selected the desired section or shelf, the student can explore the more informative, “deeper” image. Most of the objects in the shopping center are interactive, so that the student can manipulate them: zoom, rotate, mark, obtain the information about the individual elements and explore them.
