Google Expeditions

On Thursday, students from Chessington accessed learning through an immersive, and stunning, virtual reality experience.  We were fortunate to be joined by an engineer, from Google Expeditions, who supported staff to take students on various excursions to locations that many only witness on television or film. Expeditions included scuba diving with sharks, treks through the Borneo Jungle, visiting television studios and exploring the muscular system (from inside the human body).

Our Google Engineer remarked that Chessington was one of the best schools he has visited; he was so impressed with our students’  behaviour he donated some Google Cardboards to the school. A special mention must go to Milad, who worked tirelessly to provide technical support, and Chloe, who supported students with using the Google Cardboards.

I continue to be hugely impressed by students’ high commitment to learning and excellent levels of engagement.
