Designing Fun for Teachers 


The Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE) launched new courses for teachers

today, offering a popular, fun option for professional development. 


There are two courses on offer:


1)

3D Animation for Teachers

is a 10-week evening course that introduces teachers to the 3D animation

software used in the games, film and visual effects industries. In the first 6-

weeks the course will cover the fundamentals such as; modelling 3D objects,

creating surface materials, animation, lighting rendering and environment

creation. In the final 4-weeks we help teachers develop a plan and resources to

integrate 3D animation into their classes.

resources to integrate game development into their classes.
