Google Expeditions App (virtual field trips) will soon be released for iPads.

** This is an update from an earlier blog post from June 29th.


Last school year the middle school and high-school students in the district where I teach were shown Google Expeditions. Expeditions allows users to take a virtual field trip to over 200 places places like Mars, the International Space Station, Antarctica, etc without leaving your classroom.

In last week's blog post - Google announced that Expeditions will soon (not sure how soon) be coming to iOS (Apple's operating system). Users will use full-screen mode on their device instead of using a VR (virtual reality) viewer like Google Cardboard

Nearpod is another site that has great VR lessons already built in to many of their lessons. 

Any questions, let me know.
