A Search of the tesGlobal site for #GoolgeExpeditions provides lessons that use Expeditions
1. Keep learning outcomes front and center. Awe-inspiring technology like VR definitely adds the ‘“wow” factor to any lesson, but it’s only meaningful when connected to the intended learning outcomes. Use Expeditions to launch a project-based learning unit, topic of study or to deliver content and information about a location.
2. Prepare content and questions ahead of time. Consider how you’ll use engagement strategies to elicit participation from every student and plan for it. This way, during the virtual experience, you are prepared to guide students to not only see the amazing places, but to engage in meaningful and constructive dialogue about what they are viewing. The teacher’s guide to analyzing primary sources from the Library of Congress is a great place to learn how to lead students to observe, reflect and question what they are seeing.
3. Use Expeditions as a jumping off point to learn about VR. Explain That Stuff is one website that covers the history of VR and how it works, and there are many others. Doing their own research about virtual reality will give students a deeper understanding of what they are experiencing and allow them to investigate the past, present and future of VR.
