Transcript of Dawson Jones

A lot of students lose interest during History class and feel like they don’t get to go on enough field trips. You don't learn as much from a textbook than you do from a field trip. This is a real problem today, and probably will still be a problem in 2050. There needs too be something to make History classes more interesting and give students more field trips.
History classes will have simulating walls that can simulate anywhere in the world. This is an innovation of the normal simulators at amusement parks and museums. With this design, all you have to do is type in the address or global coordinates of where you want to go. It is very user friendly. Students will be able to see in all directions. Every wall simulates a different direction so you have a 360 degree view of your surrounded. Field trips will become ubiquitous. To make class more interesting, there will be hologram projectors on every table. The students will be able to view any 3-D object they want. This will meet the needs of students at Lakeside in the year 2050.

Lakeside 2050: History Class
A Glimpse into the Future of Lakeside School District
By Dawson Jones

Q: What makes your design innovative?
A: There are simulators that rock and turn, but there is only one screen. The whole classroom will simulate whatever environment you want.

Q: What was the inspiration for your design?
A: I went to a simulator at a museum and was disappointed because it didn’t actually make it seem like you were there.

Q: What features of your design do you think will most excite and inspire the students? Why?
A: The simulating walls. It will be fun for students to take more field trips. The field trips will only be as long as the teacher wants it so the students will get to go to their other classes too.

Q: How is your design going to prepare students for work, college, and career?
A: They will know so much more about the environment all over the world. If you were studying the Statue of Liberty, you could look at it just like you could if you were actually in New York.
