Google launches Daydream with a new Harry Potter game | #VR Headset #VirtualReality | Makerspaces in Libraries | Scoop.it

Google showed off its Daydream VR system for the first time today and with its debut came a better look at the games and content users will eventually be able to access. More than 50 Daydream apps are supposed to be released this year, with "hundreds" more coming after that. Google already listed several developers at its I/O event in May, but it's given some new, specific projects to look out for. That includes Gunjack 2, a sequel to EVE Online developer CCP's turret shooter for the Gear VR.

Practical lesson activities to enhance ICT use in your Geography classroom. It is essential to work through the lesson and check all links prior to setting it for students. 

Jordan Macpherson's comment, November 4, 2013 11:21 PM
I love the idea (and support it highly too) of integrating technological activities in to the classroom. Using google earth is a nice powerful tool that will get students interested in Geography as a subject, guaranteed. I really like how this article also gives you different ideas to use in your teaching also.

This is awesome, google earth is such a great way to get students interacting in their learning. I had no idea google earth had these activities though so its even better! It would be great to see one day google earth taking us down into the soils though! haha maybe one day?
