Outline

As a drama and media teacher I am always looking for ways to help students understand the many and various ways that space is used in the theatre. A 3-D software would help students design sets that suit the spatial needs of the production they are designing for. The ability to pre-visualise in design is essential and for theatre design creating viable spaces using all spatial dimensions is a real advantage. Another bonus that 3-D software offers is that it is a chance to engage students in the subject who are more comfortable in front of a screen than an audience.
