On Friday we ran a small test of the Google Cardboard devices. We used our Year 10 students to explore how effectively the Google Expedition app can be used in the classroom. The main goal of the test was to ensure students could connect their phones to the College network and then connect to the teacher’s Expedition network.
The Expedition app offers the user two options when opening, to either guide an expedition or to be an explorer where you follow the guide as they direct you to different experiences and features within an expedition.
This is a very basic use of virtual reality but judging from the responses of the students there is real potential to offer virtual reality experiences across a range of subjects.
