Google Expeditions

On Thursday 4th May, Google came to Dowson to work with the ICT Lead’s, Mrs Layfield and Miss Shaw to deliver lessons to all students using their new Virtual Reality technology, Google Cardboard.

The lessons were led using Google Expeditions, a vast library of Virtual Tours. The teachers chose tours based on the topics they were currently teaching, and used this technology as a way to engage pupils in the topics they were being taught, and transport them virtually to environments they’ll never be able to visit in person. Year 3 went on an expedition to Egypt and explored the pyramids of Giza.
