Teachers should use 3D images in classroom lessons, according to a recent American Optometric Association report that finds students often learn more quickly and retain more information using the medium. The report finds that while some people say they get headaches after viewing 3D images, this should not deter teachers from using them because such problems may indicate visual impairments among students. "This is because 3D viewing requires that both eyes function in a coordinated manner as they converge, focus and track the 3D image," said AOA President Dori Carlson.
