There was not much discussed that I found impressive. However, when I ventured into one of the alcoves, there was a video playing of a teacher visiting a scientific site simultaneously on a Hangout* with a class. Now that, was transformational. This is much different than the simple virtual tour, where students are still purely consuming information but not interacting, questioning or influencing. This is different than a Skyped interview because the students were going somewhere with the guide. This was not scripted, with rehearsed questions to interview someone (which has great educational value). This was live, real, and spontaneous. Students can actually influence the journey with questions and suggestions.
I am a technology leader, professional developer, teacher, parent and proud owner of an IEP. Let's talk about some fabulous learning experiences.
