Shake Up Learning is an educational blog written by Kasey Bell. Bell recently posted “The Google Cardboard and Expeditions Resource Guide.” The guide contains the steps to get started, resources for buying devices and headsets, YouTube tutorials, blog posts, lesson plans, apps and more!
Google Cardboard and Google Expeditions can truly enhance students’ learning experiences. Judy Deppen, French teacher at Marsh Creek, used Google Expeditions so that her students could take a virtual tour of the Palace of Versailles.
Michele Boreman, social studies teacher at Lionville Middle School, used Google Cardboard with her students to take a virtual tour of Ford’s theater and the house where Lincoln died. They could move around to explore the different rooms, floors, etc. Even cooler? The class tweeted about it; Ford Theater responded to the Tweets and a conversation ensued.
