Virtual Field Trips Around the World

It’s a big world out there — and there’s plenty to explore, even if you’re stuck at home. In a previous post, we shared some great virtual field trips in TCEA’s home state of Texas. Now we’re taking a look beyond the borders of the Lone Star State.

Virtual field trips can help students explore the world from home, and even engage in different types of learning with audio, visual, and video media. Here’s our list of some global recommendations for world-class virtual field trips.

Thank you! I had planned on converting a hyperlink list of virtual field trip resources to Wakelet and this prompted me to get it done. 🙂 Skype in the Classroom is a wonderful place to start for virtual field trips, guest speakers, Mystery Skype and so much more! link in the Wakelet: https://wke.lt/w/s/k6zOI6
