My Take

I see myself utilizing this cost effective tool in my classroom. It would work wonderful for students with special needs that may have a hard time on field trips where there are a lot of other people. The options are increasing every day and will eventually be endless. I would say the cardboard is easy to use after the initial set up. Depending on the phone positioning and size, you could end up looking at things in double vision or feeling crosseyed.

How I Use It

I imagine using this product in social studies or science class. It would be a great supplement to explore various environments, historical sites, and cultures. Set up would be complex for smaller children, but I would assemble it for each child. The google cardboard does a great job at emphasizing the surroundings in each virtual experience.
