Google Expeditions

My school had the chance to try out Google Expeditions this week.  It was super rad.  The kids were very into the expeditions (my class did Spirit the Mars Rover.)  The technology was very user friendly and surprisingly accessible.  Who knew so much could be done with a few smartphones, cardboard binoculars, and a tablet?  From the teacher viewpoint, I like the amount of control I had over when/where to access the content.  The kids were delighted with the ability to "look around" the space, and kept exclaiming over things they saw.  (Seeing the little smiley faces that represented the users rush over to pertinent objects made my life.)  I would love to do this again - next time, we're going to Venice!  Thank you Google!
