Tip of the Week: Virtual Field Trips
If we had unlimited funds we would be taking our students to authentically experience everything we teach them, wouldn't we? Fly down to Austraila to see the Great Barrier Reef. Head to Switzerland for The Large Hadron Collider. Take a boat down the Mississippi to better understand Mark Twain's point of view.
What if I can tell you this is possible even without those unlimited funds?
Virtual field trips allow you to use an IPad/Camera on your end of the trip while a real life person speaks to you and your students and may give you a tour of the location of your interest. Where can you get more information about these trips? USE THIS LINK for hundreds of possibilities and check out a 1 minute clip of a classroom below!
