If you cannot lead a trip to for example, the Palace of Versailles (which most of us cannot) your students will be able to go there via VR

How I Use It
I used it to lead students on a tour across the globe. It makes learning truly experiential.
My Take
Advice: it is really important to build put the cardboard units before class. They can be a bit tricky to assemble, even for adults. Drawbacks: Students need to have access to the free smartphones, wifi, the free Cardboard App and Administrative approval
