Google released its new product ……..Google Cardboard with students and schools as their targeted market. The low cost device used with a smartphone or iPhone means that it is accessible to all educators.
Here is a video of a Tech Ninja unboxing the google cardboard.
As stated in the video, Google cardboard is an exciting way to give students the virtual reality experience rather than using textbooks and images to learn about places.
While not all educators are going to find this exciting, many will and they will have easy access to the device. Teachers of refugee students will hopefully see the benefits a device as this one can offer and use it in a way that will help the transition from the liminal space they have been living in, to a resettling in to a new country with many opportunities waiting for them.
