Google Expeditions

Google Expeditions-Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is a new age technology that is sweeping the nation, re-imagining the way we perceive entertainment as a whole. What you could once see on the big screen is now
something you can experience right in front of you!

The world is now at your fingertips, bringing forward distant lands straight into your living room, work space, or even your school.

Now while the entertainment purposes seem endless, the potential for learning is equally infinite, as teachers and students alike are finding new and interesting ways to bring virtual reality into the classroom.

One interesting way of bringing the kids to the knowledge is Google Expeditions.

Google Expeditions is a program/app that brings far-off places to a screen right before your eyes. With a virtual reality headset, you can be put right on the ground next to the Taj Mahal, Machu Piccu, and many other historical and interesting places.

It doesn't stop there, however, as support is being added to put people wherever in the world they wish to go. Field trips will drop the buses in favor of taking virtual tours right at the monument's doorstep.

Progression into fields such as this can lead to many things, from accessing all the world's corners from the comfort of your home, to attending class online in a virtual reality school environment.

The possibilities regarding this technology are endless, and as we continue to push the boundaries of tech, we begin to learn what we can really do with our imagination.
