How I Use It
We started using Google Expeditions from a district support perspective. We wanted to show teachers how to "hook or extend" the learning in the classroom. This was a perfect program to do just that!
My Take
This is an excellent product! We didn't have a problem with our network as we used the connection setup for router only when leading the expeditions. Downloading is completed ahead of time on the regular network. Our teachers appreciate the step-by-step instructions and assistance of our Learning, Design and Technology team to make the transition of using it alone so much easier for our teachers. Not only do our students love it, but just watching the expressions on our teachers' faces and making note of how quickly both student and teacher retains the information makes it worth the effort. Having a kit of just ten devices has allowed us to discuss grouping of students for better communication and collaboration. The one kit (of 10 devices) we've been using is so popular in our district that we'll definitely purchase another!
