Unity Technologies provides technical resources and curriculum to prepare students for a real-time 3D future
Unity Technologies, the creator of real-time 3D development platform Unity, has launched two new initiatives to equip teachers with the tools to teach students computer programming, design and real-time 3D development, which are considered as essential skills for the workforce of tomorrow.
Create with Code is the first comprehensive course for educators to teach computer science using Unity, while Unity Teach is a platform and ecosystem for educators who want to teach Unity.
“When it comes to introducing students to current science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) skills, today’s teachers face an unprecedented challenge,” said Jessica Lindl, VP and Global Head of Education, Unity Technologies.
“Technology is in a constant state of evolution and even today’s best artists and engineers struggle to ensure their professional knowledge remains current. Create with Code and Unity Teach directly solve this problem by providing our educator community with the technical resources and curriculum needed to teach students development and design using Unity.”
Lack of teaching resources
The career potential for creators who can develop experiences in real-time 3D spans across industries like architecture, augmented reality, construction, engineering, entertainment, gaming, virtual reality and more. However, the opportunity for students to learn these skills is scarce, largely due to lack of teaching resources.
Create with Code and Unity Teach are the first comprehensive resources available to empower educators to easily incorporate computer programming and Unity development into their teaching, the company claims.
This will allow students to understand the real-time 3D technology from the core of their education making them an integral part of the industry along with making them future ready with the right skillset for the technological disruption, it adds.
