On Wednesday 12th October we had a member of the Google Expeditions Pioneer Program come and visit us at Moreton. We ran 20 expeditions throughout the day taking students from Years 7 to 10 on Virtual Field trips to places like Mt Everest, Moscow, The Amazon and the moon. This was a fantastic opportunity for both students and staff.
We made extraordinary learning experiences accessible using a simple piece of hardware and a free app created by Google. One of our students was brought to tears when he experienced what it would be like standing on the top of the world, and most had grins on their faces that showed their enjoyment better than any words could. We are so lucky to have had this opportunity, the buzz amongst the students was electric and we will never forget the experience.
Thanks to Miss Farook for organising the event and thanks to#Googleforeducation for bringing the event to us.
