Take students out of the classroom and into the world with an immersive learning experience.

Student-directed learning

  • By turning their heads or looking up and down, students explore virtual landscapes—focusing in on elements that excite them. Driven by student curiosity and designed to promote student-led learning, students are the drivers in their journey.

Teacher-directed instruction

  • Teachers use a tablet to lead the expeditions, monitor where students are in the virtual reality experience, pause a trip to direct students to look at a particular part of an image, and control which images students see within an expedition.
