Google Earth Voyager Google Arts and Culture Tips and tricks Use apps that already have content available and developed. Allow students to choose what they want to explore at times.

Do these activities as centers. Have some students work on VR while others use laptops to explore VR online. Google Earth, Google Street View, 360 Cities, work well on a computer. These activities are great motivators for finishing class work. If this is a transition activity or filler before class is over, students will enjoy this option! Have students turn in evidence of their learning and reflect on what they have learned. Visible Thinking Routines

Visible Thinking is a flexible and systematic researchbased conceptual framework It integrates the development of students' thinking with content learning across subject matters. It was originally developed at Lemshaga Akademi in Sweden as part of the Innovating with Intelligence project. It is part of the Project Zero project at the Graduate School of Education at Harvard.
