Google Expeditions

VR and AR

What is Google Expeditons?

Google Expeditions is an immersive education app that allows teachers and students to explore the world through over 1000 virtual-reality (VR) and 100 augmented-reality (AR) tours. You can swim with sharks, visit outer space, and more without leaving the classroom.

What is AR and VR?

Virtual reality (VR) is able to transport the students. In other words, bring us some place else. This is done using VR goggles.


Augmented reality (AR) however, takes our current reality and adds something to it. It does not move us elsewhere. It simply ​“augments” and brings something to us. This is done using a tablet or device.
