Google Expeditions 16th January 2017
We were delighted that the children enjoyed a visit from “Google Expeditions” to experience virtual reality tours of a wide variety of locations around the world this week. The viewers work when combined with either a smartphone or ipod and the educational experience is driven by the teacher who controls what the children see and learn about via their ipad. The feedback from the children was tremendous: “It was the best lesson ever!” said many of them! We would like to ask for your help to deliver this kind of opportunity regularly, to enhance our children’s learning experience in school. The PTA have agreed to purchase the cardboard virtual reality viewers but we need your old iphones (5 or later) or android phones (4.4 or later). We are looking to create a set of 30 for use by a class at a time. Perhaps your business or the company you work for regularly upgrade their phones, either recycling or donating to charity? We would love to hear from anyone who may be able to donate either a single phone or multiple phones so that the children can start using this technology in school.
