Excerpt:

For example, Google Cardboard is a pair of cardboard glasses into which one inserts a smart phone. Downloadable apps allow students to view musical performances and to take virtual field trips around the world and into space.

Each set of glasses costs about $16. Thousands of schools in the United States, Australia, Brazil and the United Kingdom are piloting Google Cardboard’s virtual field trip software called Expeditions this year, says Google spokesperson Emma Ogiemwanye.

This type of technology can be integrated into any subject area, says Shelly Terrell, an education consultant and e-learning specialist.
