Virtual Field Trip

The last GaVS Newsletter talked about taking virtual field trips in your Adobe sessions. Take a look around online and see what you could use in an Adobe to engage students in a more meaningful way. Here is one for fun! Thanks to Jeff Giddens (IT Dept.) for putting it into this neat format for me!


Happy Halloween from Teacher Quality and the Mentoring Team!
