Google Takes Students on Virtual Field Trip
On Wednesday, a friend from Google paid Bridges and SmartStart students a visit and brought some funny looking glasses along. Students soon learned that these weren’t just any cardboard glasses but Google cardboard glasses. Ryan, the Google representative, explained that the futuristic eyewear were in fact virtual. Students had the world at their fingertips and were able to take a 3D ride around the world.
HOLA teachers asked, “Where do you want to go?” as they held iPads that controlled the location to which the kids could visit.
“Spain! Greece! Hogwarts!” were a few destinations that the students eagerly pitched.
They even saw aliens!
Google, thank you for entrancing our students and literally showing them the world.
