What is Google Cardboard?
Google Cardboard uses a phone and viewer that is inexpensive, between $10-30 online through Amazon or Google. The use of the viewer and apps can let you experience virtual reality to visit places, museum spaces, play games and whatever else you can imagine – through your phone without leaving your classroom.
Watch our BrHS Student Tech Team in action with Google Cardboard – it’s hilarious! I wish I would have caught their reaction right from the beginning. Priceless.
Who has access to Google Cardboard viewers? We all do as a staff! You can check out a class set from our librarian, Jane Schissel.
How did we get 30 Google Cardboard viewers? Stacy Harkness received a class set as part of her 1:Web Cohort and she graciously shared it with BrHS. You can thank her later!
