Grade 8 students have been touring Italy using 360 degree virtual reality (VR) videos and headsets. Students were able to experience the canals of Venice, the Piazza Venezia, Cinque Terre, the Colosseum, Via Condotti, and many other wonders of Italy. The 360 degree video that plays provides students with the opportunity to watch the same video multiple times and experience different views.
There is a tremendous amount of rich immersive VR content from places and experiences around the world. This content is accessible on YouTube as we several other sources. This post outlines some of these resources. Although BCSD has a set of VR headsets shared by WMS and CVS, much of this content is also available on student chromebooks.
