Google Expeditions

Today, thanks to my friend Sandra Chow, I was invited to experience Google Expeditions at Lawrence Heights Middle School in Toronto (A big thank you to Principal David DeBelle too!).

The hype about Google Expeditions is well-deserved: this is one amazing concept. Students and teachers alike were enthralled from the beginning of the day to the end. Led by Chris Zhu from Google, teachers were able to choose from a list of about 100 different expeditions to try out with their students and we were given a brief training on how to use the app prior to our sessions.

Check out the excitement of these Joyce Street PS students!



Unfortunately, the Expeditions app is not yet available to the public: Chris told me that it won’t be available until the end of the year. This means that the only way that you will get to experience the full Google Expeditions repertoire is if a Google rep comes to your school to demonstrate it. The problem is, many schools have applied but only a few get chosen (Tip from Sandra: get lots of teachers at your school to apply separately since Google responds to high demand!).

The premise of the app is that you can take your students on virtual field trips around the world. However, you DO need the Google Cardboard viewers and the devices to insert into the viewers (smartphones or iPods) to experience this virtual reality. Fortunately, the Google Expeditions leader supplies these for your students: Chris came with 60 viewers and devices for us to use, so we were able to rotate many classes during the entire day: 2 classes at a time, every half an hour. Thanks to Sandra and David for their brilliant and creative timetabling to make this work! 

Click here for a brief post-expedition presentation that we put together with links to many Virtual Reality apps you can use right away with your students. You and your students don’t need to wait for Google Expeditions to get started: you can explore Virtual Reality on your own!

Here are some photos taken today of Lawrence Heights Middle School and Joyce Public School students and staff: What a great group! I look forward to sharing my learning with students and staff at my school, Crescent School, as soon as I can!

  1. The virtual reality gear gives students a 360-degree view of places like Madagascar and the North Pole, the Great Barrier Reef, and the moon.

    Teachers can choose from more than 100 locations and up to 50 students at a time can plug into each trip.

    1. MY REVIEWS ABOUT DR JUMBA THE BEST WORLD WIDE ONLINE REAL SPELLCASTER.
      words can not describe how happy I felt after finding your website for the past few months, I have been so depressed after losing my fiance to another woman who had a spell on him. My money situation worsened so much that I thought I’d have to file for bankruptcy. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn’t know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as Dr. Jumba has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. He carries an air of purity and divine strength that is as pure as fresh snow on the ground. I requested Dr. Jumba Most powerful spells and I was relieved right away within 24hours that I had someone to solve my problems for me. His spells worked wonders and I am now back with my fiance and my money troubles resolved itself after winning the lottery. I have no idea what I would have done without you being there to help me out: thanks so much dr Jumba. . here is his contact details Email: wiccalovespelltools@gmail.com Call & Whatsapp+19085174108

  23. I'm Sara Frédéric from Switzerland I want to let the whole world know how Dr Great has restored my broken relationship with Wayne. We have been together for 2 1/2 years and he told me that he doesn’t love me like he used to. Things have not been good for about 4 months and he ended this about 2 weeks ago. I was miserable and just don’t want to go on anymore. I did text him right after this but he didn’t even respond to me. One day I was searching for something on the Internet when I saw a post of a love spell caster called Dr Great and how he helped a lady to get back her Ex, I was so desperate to get mine back I messaged him and explained my situation to him and he instructed me to do somethings which I did and 24 hours later my boyfriend Wayne came back home kneeling and begging for my forgiveness and I forgave him and our relationship was back to normal again if your Ex broke up with you or you have any problem then you problem has come to an end because God is using Dr Great to solve all our problems and put a smile on our faces if you need his urgent help email him at infinitylovespell@gmail.com

  45. My husband and I separated recently. We’ve been married for six years now and it’s been an abusive relationship in all types of way. I want to figure out myself and fix my own issues so I can be a great mom and wife but I feel like is a waste of time to try to fix my marriage because it’s broken down and I’m emotionally drained and I just want to focus on my kids. And I feel it’s unfair for me to try to fix something that I’m the only one that’s putting effort into. I’m so confused. That had been my decisions until i came across an article in a blog on how Dr.Ogudugu (greatogudugu@gmail.com) helped many people to restore broken marriages/relationships. I quickly contacted him, and he told me what i should do, which i did immediately. Within 48hours my husband came back and the greatest part of it is that my husband has changed completely, he no longer abuses or insults me. Today, he has become a loving and caring husband.
