Imagine taking your students on a virtual field trip to the Amazon, the moon, the Gutenberg Museum, or the city of Verona from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Since the introduction of Google Cardboard in 2014, educators across the globe imagined the exciting classroom possibilities of offering an inexpensive virtual reality (VR) experience to their students. Google Cardboard turns a smart phone into a 360 degree VR experience! Using Google Street View, Google Expeditions, or a variety of educationally-based virtual reality apps you can increase student engagement across the curriculum. Join Amy Schorn, Grade 7 Geography teacher and Julie Spang, Technology Integration Specialist as they demonstrate the many exciting applications available on ios and android devices. Journey around the world within the walls of the classroom. "Take your students to places a school bus can't go." Google for Education (Presenter(s): Julie Spang, Technology Integration Specialist, Groton Dunstable Regional Middle School, and Amy Schorn, Groton Dunstable Regional Middle School)
