Virtual Reality Field Trips from Google Expeditions

Google Expeditions has come to Britain. Google has just opened up their Google Expeditions Pioneer Programme to more schools across the UK. Imagine being able to take your students on immersive journeys to places you never thought possible. With a virtual reality viewer, phone or tablet, students can be magically transported to different places on Earth and even Mars! They could explore the inside of Buckingham Palace or the Great Barrier Reef. So far there are 200 engaging expeditions. Journeys are suitable for all age groups from 7 upwards. With the teacher acting as a “guide”, pointing out interesting sights along the way, classroom-sized groups of “explorers” are led through collections of 360° and 3D images.

The Google Expedition App is freely available on both iOS and Android. Lesson plans are available for every expedition and there’s training showing you how to embark on an expedition.
