Virtual Field Trips: Taking and Making
- 3 Credits
Field trips are a wonderful way to see and learn about the world around us. However, field trips can be difficult to organize, can be expensive, usually involve travel, and are often impractical. With the advent of the World Wide Web, virtual field trips have become possible. The course will provide participants with a survey of what types of virtual field trips are possible. Then, using computer and Internet technology, students will develop meaningful lessons centered around virtual field trips that also meet subject matter standards and framework requirements. Finally, participants will create a simple virtual field trip of their own design.
