Google Cardboard is quality, affordable teaching tool
Community Review for Google Cardboard
I like this teaching tool. I liked that each student works individually and will have their own cardboard. I liked the actual technology, it was very cool, very engaging. One problem for elementary students would be finding 20-30 smartphones for them to use. However, this can be solved by observing the cardboard one at a time. Also the construction of the cardboard makes me nervous for the fate of a phone in the cardboard in the hands of a first grader. They like to throw..
How I Use It
I would use this product for science content and geography learning. Social studies. You may be able to implement other subjects, but the cardboard won't do it for you. The tool is very engaging and will keep students interested. The cardboard is good for showing kids something that you wouldn't otherwise be able to.
