Virtual reality field trips

I’m particularly excited for the use of virtual reality in travel and education. A recent article posted on the Wall Street Journal discusses students using virtual reality goggles in the classroom to virtually visit places like the Great Wall of China, Chichen Itza, and Tenochtitlan.

“The search giant sends kits to teachers that contain everything they need to run one of these virtual trips: ASUS smartphones, a tablet for the teacher to direct the tour and Google Cardboard viewers or Mattel View-Masters.”

Schools can sign up to have Google bring the experience to their school through the Experience Pioneer Program at no cost. But space is limited.
