In the last week Year 13 students have been going on ‘virtual geography’ trips experiencing some of the things which are generally too far away or too dangerous to see in real life. To supplement their studies of hazards they ‘visited’ a volcano and explored the underground features such as magma chamber, main vents and subduction zone. They saw volcanic bombs and laving erupting all from the safety of the classroom.
We also explored underwater to look at marine ecosystems and even went to the moon.
The possibilities for geography, as well as many other subjects, are limitless and we will be experimenting with this technology across more classes in 2017.
