Winners of the CGTrader Annual Scholarship 2018 announced

For a couple of years now, CGTrader has been organizing an annual scholarship for students around the globe inviting them to dig into the field of technology. The way we see our future now has drastically changed since technologies are evolving faster than ever. Last year, we encouraged students to think of how life on a spaceship would look like. Will it be an exciting experience? Will it change our daily habits forever? Or maybe, it will be a change to which it will be difficult or even impossible to adapt?

Holodecks and Smart-Phone Wands: How Technology Could Continue to Shape Our Minds

Holodecks and Smart-Phone Wands: How Technology Could Continue to Shape Our Minds

An essay by Catherine Vigil, CGTrader Annual Scholarship 2017 winner

When thinking about the future of technology in education, my first instinct is to imagine a Holodeck-like scenario in which students embark on a tour of a historian’s reconstruction of the Library of Alexandria, guided by their exuberant history teacher, picking up ancient scrolls or speaking with a long-dead philosopher. Perhaps in French class, instead of simply googling pictures of Bordeaux, they might experience the sights and sounds of a famous port city, getting chance to practice their French with native speakers – all while remaining in high school classrooms.

Meet the students who were the best at “The future of technology in education” essay competition

Catherine Vigil, a 19 year old girl from the biggest city in the state of New Mexico in the US, at this time, probably is ±2220 miles away from her home. And the reason for this is simple – Catherine is studying Biology and Systems Theory at Harvard University. Despite intense studies, she found time to write an essay worth the 1st place in CGTrader’s Annual Essay Competition.
