On Thursday 4th May, Google came to Dowson to work with the ICT Lead's, Jo Layfield and Kelly Shaw to deliver lessons to all students using their new Virtual Reality technology, Google Cardboard.

The lessons were led using Google Expeditions, a vast library of Virtual Tours. The teachers chose tours based on the topics they were currently teaching, and used this technology as a way to engage pupils in the topics they were being taught, and transport them virtually to environments they'll never be able to visit in person.

If you'd like any details about using Google Cardboard and Expeditions, and more generally, Google Classroom for lesson delivery, please get in touch and I'll be able to make the links with the staff at Dowson using this extensively.
