Travel the World from Your Classroom: Free iPad Apps for Virtual Field Trips

Travel the World from Your Classroom: Free iPad Apps for Virtual Field Trips | Fun Web 2.0 in Elementary Education | Scoop.it

"Not every school has the resources necessary to take their students on an airplane . . . or spaceship. The iPad can bring the world to your students' fingertips in ways never before possible. Many national parks and museums have apps designed for onsite visitors. These navigational tools are also great for classrooms who can't make the trip. In fact, a variety of free apps can be used as virtual field trips so that children can travel the world from your classroom!"

Could be awesome for task-based learning... "Voy a tomar un viaje a... vamos a.... etc..."

Bronte Rowe's curator insight, April 15, 9:34 PM

“The most powerful and positive learning outcomes occur in those contexts where students’ knowledge and interest are well matched to the nature of the learning task” (McInerney & McInerney, 2010, pp. 104-5). Resources for younger children need to be meaningful but something which they can access easily. My idea for this resource is to use the Sphere 360° Photography App to virtually explore where the students’ families are from. Firstly, the teacher would need to ask the students where they were born, because it is highly relevant and students tend to be more engaged when learning is about them.  Then open up the discussion to include where parents and grandparents were born; which town/city and especially which country they were born in. It doesn’t matter if they children are incorrect or are unsure of where their parents/grandparents are born because the focus of this exercise is to discuss different places in the world families have come from. It could be a good idea to write down the names of students, which family member and where they were born (i.e. Gregory- Grandmother, Switzerland). This gives the students some vocabulary relating to place and family which they can refer back to. This discussion is necessary to get the students thinking and engaged.  Use the app to “visit” these countries, inform the students that they are going on an overseas trip to where their mother/father/grandfather/grandmother/etc. were born!
