Schools operating in a virtual reality

Google Expeditions is an exciting new app which is currently being trialled in just 10 countries, with Ireland being one of the lucky few. Teachers can sign up to use this free tool which allows them to bring their students on a 360 degree virtual tour of over 150 amazing destinations, such as Machu Picchu, The Moon or the Galapagos islands.

All that is required to take part in this trial is a tablet or smartphone and a cardboard headset for each student.

There are currently only two schools in Ireland using this software, but you can sign up for free here.
