Imagine visiting the bottom of the Barrier Reef, behind the scenes of Buckingham Palace or even the surface of Mars all in one afternoon! With Google Expeditions, teachers can take their students on immersive virtual journeys to bring their lessons to life.
The Halcyon community was extremely excited to welcome the Google Expedition team for a second time to our school. Students, staff and parents visited:
- The moon
- North Pole
- Aztec ruins: El Castillo, Chichen Itza
To name but a few places!
Isaac in Grade 9 said: “My Design class got to visit the London Transport Museum and I felt so immersed in the virtual reality experience!”
Jon Neale, Halcyon’s Digital Learning Leader, organised this fantastic opportunity and said: “The rate with which technology is changing makes Halcyon such an exciting space to be working as we get to showcase pioneering EdTech! Things like Google Expeditions with their transformative power deepens learning experiences and makes them more memorable for students and staff. I was delighted at how enthusiastic our parents were with the experience too!”
