Google Cardborad

Take your students around the world while staying in the classroom. Google Cardboard is a virtual reality device that can be purchased for twenty dollars or less on-line. It works with an i-phone or android. Once you have the device, download the Google Cardboard Apps on your phone, and you are ready to virtually travel the world.

Google Cardboard was introduced in our elementary makerspace this semester and the students loved it. It was a challenge to get the phones. But, I had a generous donor let us borrow phones that had working apps without a phone service, and they worked out fine.
Students loved the roller coaster app. In the classroom it can be used to explore settings, environments, and unlimited educational destinations. Click here to learn more.
