Virtual field trips enable students to visit places near and far without having to worry about weather, long bus rides, or packing a lunch. In this workshop, participants will learn how virtual field trips can enhance the curriculum and will become familiar with many excellent sources of virtual field trips. Participants will also learn about various formats for virtual field trips and how to bring curriculum to life with the use of free, Web-based technologies including Skype and Google Earth. Participants will also consider issues of assessment and will explore how Web-based technologies can provide opportunities for reflection to further bolster instruction. By the end of the workshop, participants will have planned an engaging virtual field trip, aligned to curriculum standards, which they can use in their classrooms.
