Image of the Week: Exploring Science Tools in a Virtual Classroom Tour

The beginning of the school year is an exciting time where teachers are introducing students to their new learning environment. One way teachers can have students explore the tools they will be using is to create a virtual classroom tour. Our image of the week comes to us from Susan Vengen.

For the next couple of weeks, we will feature an image created during our ThingLink Summer Teacher Challenge. Our hope is two-fold: first, these posts will inspire you to incorporate ThingLink’s 360/VR editor in your classroom and allow your students a chance to create with it. Secondly, we hope these posts encourage you to join in on the fun and learning. Maybe your image will be showcased!

Susan created this image as a way to introduce her students to the Science tools they will be using. We know what you are thinking, the 360° image does not fit this topic. As Susan states, “My original thought was to take a 360 image of my classroom with the science tools out – maybe show where safety equipment could be found, also!” Since it is summer, she used a 360 image to complete this challenge. When she can get back into her classroom space, Susan can take a 360 photo of her room and tag that with each of the tags in this image.
