PD in your PJs: Virtual Field Trips

Come find out how to find virtual field trips and how to build your own with the Instructional Technology Department. Resources will be shared for elementary and secondary classrooms.  

What is a Virtual Field Trip and how do you go about taking one? Virtual Field trips uses images, video and text to allow your students to travel across continents, through time and into outer space. Some trips are held at a specific time and include interacting with experts or other classrooms while others can happen anytime you need them to.  Why take a virtual field trip?  Research has shown that when done right these can help build content area vocabulary, address the needs of ELL and visual learners as well as provide new experiences for the low SES population.
