Here is the article if you would like to check it out! 10 Reasons Every Teacher Needs A Professional Learning Network

TLC Tech Coaches Justin Copeland & Cole Boatright recently received a grant from the Fairfield Education Foundation to purchase a Google Expeditions Virtual Reality Kit! We hope to bring the kits to classrooms next school year. Special thank you to the Fairfield Education Foundation for their grant!

Google Expeditions Kit

Google Expeditions enable teachers to bring students on virtual trips to places like museums, underwater, and outer space. Expeditions are collections of linked virtual reality (VR) content and supporting materials that can be used alongside existing curriculum. These trips are collections of virtual reality panoramas — 360° panoramas and 3D images — annotated with details, points of interest, and questions that make them easy to integrate into curriculum already used in schools. Google is working with a number of partners, including: WNET, PBS, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the American Museum of Natural History, the Planetary Society, David Attenborough with production company Alchemy VR and many of the Google Cultural Institute museum partners to create custom educational content that spans the universe.

Check out the Google Expeditions video below. Our kit will have actual VR headsets instead of the Google Cardboard glasses but you get the idea of what the kit can do!

THANK YOU!

The TLC Tech team would like to thank each and every single one of you for your work this school year! We appreciate your cooperation and willingness to allow us into your classrooms and professional development.

If you have any suggestions for the Trojan Tech newsletter please send them our way! We are always looking for ways to improve the newsletter and make it more useful for you. We hope you have found the newsletter useful throughout the 2016-2017 school year and look forward to starting them back up in September!
