As part of Ivanhoe College’s commitment to providing the best technology for our students, we have recently invested in a class set of Virtual Reality devices.
These devices comprise of mobiles phones placed into Google cardboard headsets and use the Google Expeditions app to take the students on virtual reality field trips. These trips may be locations around the world or a tour of the human respiratory system. As you can imagine, this will provide excellent opportunities for students to enjoy unique experiences and encounter places they may never be able to visit.
When using this technology students will be supervised and will be provided with the following guidance:
When using a VR headset, you must be sitting down
VR headsets must not be attached to the user’s head (there are no straps on the headsets)
If you feel unwell, stop using. The device can be used without the headset
Breaks are encouraged. You should not have the headset on constant use for the full hour
Devices can be adjusted within the headset to improve focus.
If you would like further information, you can find this at the Google Expeditions
website - https://edu.google.com/expeditions/
If you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
