Virtual fieldtrips are a means to discover the world via technology. A virtual fieldtrip can help students explore the past, present, and future. Examine the many learning experiences that can be applied to a virtual fieldtrip.
How is what I am seeing connected to what I already know or my previous knowledge?
What new questions arise because of what I have seen?
Where is there more information about this object or topic?
Following are three activities to consider that accompany a virtual fieldtrip
Become a Docent: Prepare a “talk” that would facilitate the understandings of visitors to one of the galleries in the museum.
Become a Curator: Prepare a set of placards for an exhibition in the museum that was visited.
Study Museology: Design a three-dimensional museum complete with a publication for the exhibition. Share it with the class.
