You have probably heard of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) in the media, online or you might have even tried this technology. Now you can use this VR and AR in your classroom to take your students on virtual field trips or get up close to statues from ancient times.
Virtual Reality provides an opportunity for educators to immerse their students in their learning like never before.
Augmented Reality allows students to see 3D objects and manipulate them to discover how things work through collaborative engagement.
During this session, you will be introduced to the free app, Google Expeditions, which is available on all platforms for mobile devices.
You will learn how the app works, discover what Expeditions are available, and will learn how to practically implement this into your classroom with existing technology that your school has.
You will develop classroom activities and resources for implementing Google Expeditions and see how it can be used across different learning areas.
You can guide your “explorers” to places they can only dream of or students can take hold of their learning and discover things for themselves.
