DISPLAYING ITEMS BY TAG: IMMERSIVE LEARNING

Today I saw something amazing! I watched in awe (and travelled with) a group of 30 students to the moon. Crystal clear, fully immersed and wandering the craters, with colleagues and children next to me sharing their excitement. I am, of course, talking about Google Expeditions. If ever there was a positive retort to the relentless technology bashing in the online world, this is it. Not the visual experience. Not even the chance to see something that most of us will never truly experience in our lifetime. It was the awe and wonder created through the digitally convergent experience. It has been many years since I’ve seen the spark in the eyes of EVERY child in the room (after they’d removed their Google Cardboard glasses, of course).

Over the course of the 2014/15 academic year, various schools across the country have customised their school with immersive environments. These areas allow pupils (and teachers) to be whisked away to limitless places without ever leaving the classroom.
