    Spatial Learning Pathways

    Spatial reasoning is the ability to think and manipulate objects in 3-dimensions, often starting with a 2-dimensional representation of the object.  Spatial learning refers to the process that students go through to acquire spatial reasoning skills. Whether it is redesigning their own workspace, visiting interstellar worlds, or simulating a biological system, these skills empower students to navigate, manipulate, create, and build with, around, and in physical and virtual space.

    Through partnerships with Digital Promise, Unity, Meta, NSF, and other community members, spatial learning curriculum, hardware, and software, are currently available at a number of BCPS Middle and High Schools.

    In these programs, students experience spatial learning via intentional research-based instruction and practice in STEM-focused subject areas. Research has demonstrated that this educational application of these skills has broad reach in equitably retaining students in STEM coursework, leading to success and increased diversity in STEM careers.
