How I Use It
I used this device in an instructional technology class. We used it along with the app Expeditions. We put the phones in the cardboard and used the Expedition app. The cardboard worked very well to create the effect for virtual reality. It cut out all other sights and let you only see the image. This made you become completely immersed.
My Take
I think it works great as teaching tool. Its easy to use and affordable. Two of my favorite things. I would highly suggest it for littler ones. However, if you easily get motion sick, I would not suggest partaking in this activity. I liked it other than the motion sickness part! It did what it was created to do and I could not have been more happier with the results. Everyone was completely engaged and had fun using the devices.
