Google Expeditions: Taking Virtual Tours to Learn More About Art!

My students need a Google Expedition Kit to go on virtual tours around the world. This will help make our art lessons even more meaningful.

My Students

My students are so eager to learn. Our school is a rural elementary school where all students receive free breakfast and lunch. We are in close proximity to a large military base and serve many children with military connections.

My students are not just artists, they are thinkers, inventors, and problem- solvers.

My students thrive with hands-on learning. In art class and in our Maker-Space Lab, students are given a variety opportunities to work with their hands. I enjoy hearing my words repeated and paraphrased by my students. One of my favorites is after hearing one child say, "This is hard" another will chime back, "It's not hard, it's challenging!"

My Project

My students have a love for learning driven by curiosity, which leads to exploration and discovery. For many of my students, traveling is a luxury. With Google Expeditions, the cost isn't a factor. Students will partake in virtual reality tours all over the world without leaving our classroom.

Students can become immersed in VR tours that take them all over the world as I guide them on a tablet (as if they were actually there).

These students will develop technological skills as they immerse themselves in several virtual reality experiences. By having these phones, students will have the opportunity to create their own virtual reality experience, which they can share with the world. The most exciting aspect would be using Google Expeditions. This is a brand new program, which only a few schools across North America have access to. Google Expeditions will give my students access to over 100 guided tours all over the world. There are several "Career Expeditions" where you tour several different careers. There are also virtual college tours, as well as tours to several historic landmarks all over the world. My biggest purpose for using this Google Expedition Kit would be to enhance my art lessons. I want to take students around the world to show them all the art around us. It will help inspire their love of learning, and their own art pieces. Thank you so much for your support!
