2020 #VWEDU: #DTA: Educational field trips in the browser. Parental supervision as needed. No travel cost, no travel time, no school responsibility.


Educational field trips to virtual worlds.  
Parental supervision as needed.  
No travel cost, no travel time, no school responsibility.


Educational field trips are probably out for now.  But safe field trips to virtual places are increasingly available.  Here are reports on a few. 

Digital places

        Browser-based or installed

        Browser-based

        • Go there in the browser, works on Chromebooks and tablets.
        • Nothing to install
        • Easy access.  Tradeoff: limited capabilities.

        Installed

        • Works on laptops above the cheapest, needs app installed.
        • Extensive capabilities.  Tradeoff: More effort to access.
