Google Expeditions

This week at our staff Tech Brekkie, we were able to experience using Google Expeditions, with smart phones, and a cardboard viewer to go on virtual reality field trips.

Forget about the pre-trip visits and risk assessments, with Google Expeditions, experience an immersive tour into space or through the digestive system; estimate and calculate volume as you explore the size of the great pyramids; or visit the Great Barrier Reef as stimulus for a descriptive writing task.

Check out this video for a brief demo from Google.

If you want to try it yourself the Google Expeditions app can be installed onto your smartphone from here.
