Google Expedition allows students and teachers to take field trips to virtually anywhere, and LaRae Dotson at Sunnyside Elementary will be blazing the trail with this new technology thanks to the Durango Education Foundation Bank of Colorado Education Innovation Award.
This grant will allow the school to purchase the Google Expedition Kit that includes virtual reality goggles that students can wear to have a completely immersive experience as their teacher leads them through a virtual field trip. The expeditions align to grade-level curriculum and can take students to experience hard to reach places like outer space or even inside the human body. There are even Career Explorations Expeditions that allow classes to explore what a day is like as a pilot, veterinarian, and more.
Congratulations, LaRae! We can't wait to see where your Google Expeditions take you.
