The places we can go…

Background…. over the last couple of weeks, I have been searching for some interesting ideas and uses of ICT to include in my unit plan for a Year 2, Geography class.  The unit titled, ‘The Places We Can Go’, connects children to places near and far away. Students will interview a parent or significant other with questions, they have prepared and discussed, to identify connections family members may have to places near and far. As we experience the wonders of multiculturalism in our classrooms, this unit would additionally provide an opportunity to enhance children’s understanding, acceptance and respect for others.
‘My goal was to transform student learning beyond traditional classroom practices.’
… and there it was …. I discovered GOOGLE EXPEDITION!
 I could now take my students on the most amazing virtual journey around the globe without leaving the classroom.

Expedition allows a teacher acting as a “guide” to lead classroom-sized groups of “explorers” through collections of 360° and 3D images while pointing out interesting sights along the way’ (Google, 2017).
See the faces on the children as Google Expedition
brings to life their learning.

Take an adventure…
In the classroom…
Everyone gets to go…
