Field Trip 3.0
Is this the field trip of the future? The G+ team just announced the launch of the "Connected Classrooms" project. This new initiative is meant to help create a forward-leaning model for virtual field trips. Personally, I feel that this might help already time and resource strapped schools to increase both access to knowledge and access to other learners around the world. I have negative memories of long bus rides, often misplaced permission slips and general hassle surrounding both attending and organizing school field trips. However, I feel a (minor) danger of this model would be to solely rely on virtual platforms as a complete replacement for in-person experiences. What are your thoughts?
