Living in a high poverty school district, many of my students have never been out of our county. My students need the ability to make connections in their learning to the real world. By utilizing Google Expeditions, my students will be magically transported to anywhere on Earth, and even beyond! Students will utilize four Asus Zenphone 2s loaded with Google Cardboard. The phones will then be paired with Mattel's View Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack to bring the real world into the classroom. The Insignia 10.1 Tablet will be used by myself to control the Google Expeditions app and act as a guide for my students. This will help my students develop a new love of learning. It can be difficult for students to visualize the concepts they learned. By utilizing Expeditions as an integral part of every unit, or themed area of focus, students will be more engaged and ask more in-depth questions that show a deeper understanding of the topics.
