Holography: A Transformative Technology for Learning and Human Performance Improvement
Frazer, Gary W.; Stevens, George H.
Educational Technology, v55 n6 p38-42 Nov-Dec 2015
Most past and current learning technologies have been one- or two-dimensional in presentation. This may be fine if one is looking at a map or even a fine painting. However, to fully appreciate the detail of a statue or a machine part, it is better to be able to look at it from all sides. Use of holographic images allows an item to be shared with a learner, who can turn it around to review the different aspects of the item along with a narrative. In cases where there are structures involved, it provides immersive simulation opportunities. Holography provides a more realistic environment for the learner and enhances the learning by immersing students or trainees in that environment and allows them to see objects from all sides. Less focus has to be put on describing an object or environment, and more emphasis is placed on its use or construction.
