Great way to explore the world from your classroom
Google Cardboard is an incredibly beneficial tool. No previous knowledge is required when using this teaching tool. Google Cardboard puts a student at a historical landmark, different country, or in a place they never thought they could possibly see. It gives them a different perspective and helps create a picture to represent a specific place. If students are having trouble visualizing a place or event, Google Cardboard can be used to help create a picture and further learning.
How I Use It
When exploring a theme in class, my classroom used Google Cardboard. This enabled my students to take a virtual tour of a place we were discussing in class. The visuals and benefit of seeing a place referenced in class helped students visualize the place better and make them feel as if they, themselves, were there.
