The children in KS2 were treated to a virtual field trip, when the Google for Education ‘Expedition Team’ visited school last week.
About Google Expeditions:
Expeditions is a new product that allows teachers to take their classes on virtual field trips, immersing students in experiences that bring abstract concepts to life and giving students a deeper understanding of the world beyond the classroom.
The trips are collections of virtual reality panoramas — 360° photo spheres, 3D images and video, ambient sounds — annotated with details, points of interest, and questions that make them easy to integrate into the curriculum.
While nothing replaces hopping on the bus for a field trip, Expeditions provide an unparalleled opportunity for supplemental learning.
Here are some pictures of the children in year 4/5 enjoying their experience!
