What Google’s virtual field trips look like in the classroom | New learning | Scoop.it
Google Expeditions are field trips with a virtual reality twist. Last spring, Hector Camacho guided his high school economics class on comprehensive tours of the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Reserve banks, and the Treasury Building. Students swept their eyes up countless Neoclassical columns before heading inside for a detailed look -- all without leaving the library of their Mountain View, California school.

great addition to the classroom for this year - just add Google cardboard!

Connected Lead Learner: Goodbye Hallways and Welcome to Idea Street!

Connected Lead Learner: Goodbye Hallways and Welcome to Idea Street! | New learning | Scoop.it
Welcome To Idea Street! 

Last January, I took a risk and placed a Makerspace in our hallway because our students deserved something better! (http://connectedleadlearner.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-ones-who-see-things-differently.html?m=1). This was a massive success, as it created a movement of makers (students and staff), while improving the climate and culture in the building. 

Take a moment and think about the hallways in your current learning environment. Lockers, open space, bulletin boards, and student work come to mind as it depends on the grade level building that you work in. As you walk down your hallways, does it create a sense of invitation of excitement to students or does it scream traditional, institutional, boring where discipline issues occur? More than likely, it's the later of the two. Yet, I have to ask, "Why do we continue to ignore this"? This ladies and gentlemen is where I draw the line.
