  12. [...] Extra Credit K12 Online Conferences: Virtual Field Trips Posted on April 27, 2012 by William Brown Virtual field trips may not be as effective as the real thing but it is a very nice asset to have. A lot of times the field trips are expensive and can cost the kids money as well. This is a great way to visit educational places that may be out of reach to the school wishing to attend or to expensive to attend. You can also go on more “field trips” than your normally would throughout the year. If you are interested in a economical feasible way to take your kids out of the classroom (while still in the classroom), then this is for you. Check out the link.—> Virtual Field Trips [...]

  15. [...] Virtual Fieldtrips — This presentation about “Getting out of the Classroom” was useful for my World History class.  Project Explorer is a site that hosts already-made fieldtrips for kids, though most of what I saw was better suited to Middle School.  Google Earth is clearly something that I’ve thought would be great to use (and I have, but only in a very basic way), and she did provide some good instructions for how to go about making a good field trip, which I might pursue later.  Her symbaloo site looks like a good resource as well, but most importantly, Symbaloo itself looks really cool, and I think I’m gonna make one!  In fact, I’m not sure if/why Delicious doesn’t at least have a view/format like Symbaloo’s.  It’s familiar looking for smartphone users (like most of us) who like the kid-in-a-candy-store layout of smartphone and tablet apps.  Her checklist (a google doc) about how to create a VFT is good too.
