3D Digital Artifact Collection



Artifacts Teach brings innovative Web and
3D technologies together to create a powerful platform for teachers.

Since we are teachers ourselves, we understand the challenges that educators face in providing students an effective, engaging learning experience. Artifacts Teach allows you to integrate digitized artifacts into your established lessons to increase engagement, connect with content, and establish an enriched learning environment.


Artifacts offer students fresh, new perspectives. 

Artifacts are man-made objects, created for a purpose. Each contains the story of its origins and applications. Design, use, evaluation and repurposing are all part of that story. In other words, math, science, Language Arts and Social Studies exist in every object. Artifacts Teach offers the range of artifacts that allow you to choose those that will enlighten, enrich and educate in new and powerful ways.


Help students discover the connections between what they are studying and how it affects their daily lives. 

Artifacts Teach lays the foundation for critical thinking as it engages your students in realistic problem solving. Your individually tailored lessons will provide the vehicle for effective student study, whether you are meeting the requirements of the Common Core or achieving the grade-level goals and objectives as defined in your state and local standards.
