Wouldn’t you love to be able to take your students to Paris or Milan, sit front row and watch the latest season’s runway fashion shows? How about taking your students to some of the world’s most famous art museums and allowing them to walk the halls and experience famous artists and their work? Or, spend the afternoon at a cosmetic manufacturing facility, allowing students to see how beauty and wellness products are created and distributed? Or, what if you could take your students on a tour of the human body?
The great news is, you can! How? By way of virtual field trips, which allow your students to encounter these valuable learning experiences from the comfort and convenience of your classroom. All you need is an internet connection and a browser to travel the world and bring your lessons to life!
Much like traditional field trips, virtual field trips are designed to be entertaining and educational. The question is, where exactly can you go on a virtual field trip? Just about anywhere!
Trip experiences can vary depending on your lesson objectives and/or needs. They can be very simple or elaborate; a simple photo tour, a live video feed, or an interactive virtual 3D tour with video and audio to make the experience very engaging for students.
