Teachers can now take their students on virtual reality trips to virtually anywhere, without leaving the school; powered by Google Expeditions, a Your Cloud Works Virtual Reality Rental Kit makes virtual reality accessible and affordable for all schools.
What is Google Expeditions?
Google Expeditions is a virtual reality app that was built for classrooms to enhance and extend student learning. It utilises virtual reality viewfinders, phones and a tablet, allowing teachers to magically transport their students on virtual journeys anywhere on Earth – and even beyond.
The Google Expeditions app allows a teacher acting as a “guide” to lead classroom-sized groups of “explorers” through collections of 360° and 3D images while pointing out and highlighting interesting sights, and referring to editable notes. There are already over 200 Expeditions, each comprised of a description and points of interests for the teacher, which makes it easy to incorporate into the curriculum.
Visit the bottom of the sea, Buckingham Palace or even the surface of Mars all in an afternoon.
