Digital Excursions have allowed our students to explore the world from the comfort of their homes.
Using Google Tour Creator, vr.google.com/tourcreator/, teachers and students can be the creators of their own 360° Virtual Reality tours. Starting from scratch or utilising the templates, users have the ability to add their own images or those from Google Street View, descriptions, and audio to their tours. Using the point of interest feature to draw the attention of the viewer, specific imagery and related information can be embedded to showcase information and/or learning.
The Digital Excursion Virtual Tours we explored this term are below. Please feel free to use with your students or create your own.
