Last week we were lucky enough to try Google Expeditions.
We had access to different types of viewers
Our students were able to explore the world from the bottom of the ocean to the moon! Teachers were able to pick from over 100 field trips and tie previous learning experiences to their Google Expedition experience.
Students had time to explore images on their own and we were able to focus their attention when needed. The software had built-in points for images with more information. A teacher could simply touch a pin to focus the class. Students could follow an arrow on their device to focus where the was directing them. The teacher could read more information about that location to the class.
It was a great experience for both students and teachers. I am excited for the future of this program and look forward to getting it in the hands of more students!
