  10. 10. Deep View Complete A free 2D and 3D graphics viewing application. View in 3D with Deep View Free at
  11. 11. Communicate, collaborate and visualize dynamic product data. Using 3D allows students to “Demonstrate knowledge of…”. 3D visualization empowers inquiry learning. View in 3D with Deep View Free at
  12. 12. Using 3D to show the details *.rh models are web ready! Edit 2015: This slide contained 3D material that can no longer be displayed here. It was powered by the Deep View toolset.
  13. 13. Optional Face2Face and Camps • Meet the teacher • Meet peers and develop a ‘class’ • Optional eHui days • Optional Aviation Camp at NZRAF Base Woodbourne
