Google Expeditions uses Google Cardboard to take students on virtual field trips. At BETT 2016, Google for Education announced the a release of the app to allow schools to start taking Expeditions. A phone is placed inside of a Google Cardboard device and students hold it up to their face. The Expedition is delivered by the teacher via a tablet, directing students to elements of the image.

Is is required that students put their phone into Google Cardboard to view or could they view just using their phones without Google Cardboard?
Thanks for sharing!
Hi .. you know any educational project that can be implemented with Google Cardboard? We want to use with children in difficult conditions of poverty. Thank you!!
It’s a new product, people are just starting to use it. Always be asking is this a gimmick or how is it making learning better? Think of learning objectives and how they are enhanced by Google Cardboard. I like this activity of measuring the Eiffel Tower. http://new-to-teaching.blogspot.com/2016/02/3-google-cardboard.html
