Google Expeditions

Google Expeditions are virtual field trips in the form of 360 photospheres that can be viewed through virtual reality headsets called Google Cardboard that are driven via the Google Expeditions App on the smartphones.

There are over 300 Google Expeditions listed in this spreadsheet: http://bit.ly/1GxJ9xf

Some of these expeditions have lessons plans in TES: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?q=%23Googleexpeditions

About the project

In the Google- and UK's Open University-funded project, we are investigating the role of Google Expeditions in Geography and Science learning and teaching in schools. Details of our project are available in this blog post

UK's Open University (Shailey Minocha and Ana-Despina Tudor) is working with Google and leading UK education organisations including the Field Studies Council (Steve Tilling and David Morgan), Geographical Association (Rebecca Kitchen and Alan Kinder) and The Association for Science Education (Marianne Cutler and Richard Needham).
