Kaneland CAC Members Demo Google Expeditions

Members of Kaneland’s Citizen’s Advisory Committee received a demo of Google Expeditions on September 22, 2016.

Kaneland CUSD#302 is honored to be part of the Google Expeditions Pioneer Program, a beta program, for Google Expeditions. Expeditions is a new product that allows teachers to take their classes on virtual field trips, immersing students in experiences that bring abstract concepts to life and giving students a deeper understanding of the world beyond the classroom. Think of it as a field trip to a place our buses could never go.

In May, Kaneland Harter Middle School students used Google Expeditions to virtually explore Roman Ruins, the Sackler Galleries of the Smithsonian, a lower east side tenement, the Tuskegee Airmen Memorial Site, the respiratory system and more.

From the corn fields of the Midwest, sixth grade students take a walk through into the Coliseum.
