Engaging Touchscreen Sketching Products to Support STEM Understanding

Sketching is an important, but under-taught, skill for learning in a wide range of areas. The act of sketching has been shown to improve the cognitive ability to think spatially and improve creativity. Our products include an intelligent learning environment where students can freehand sketch on a touchscreen device and receive personalized grading feedback and hints to improve their conceptual understanding and promote student persistence.

Spatial Vis Engineering™

Engineering students need strong spatial visualization skills to envision 2D and 3D shapes for their Design, CAD, and theory classes. Sketching orthographic and isometric shapes has been shown to increase spatial visualization ability, GPAs in STEM, and graduation rates in engineering. The Spatial Vis™ Engineering app can raise students sketching and cognitive abilities. It can be taught in class or assigned as homework. For more information on the benefits of Spatial Vis Engineering™, see results.
