Empathy Exploration Goes Global 2

I want my kids to take cultural, global field trips through Google cardboard programs. Students can interact with people locally or globally

[Optional] Synthesize a little! What's one take away or insight to leave people with?

Google Cardboard VR is allowing children to ‘experience’ a foreign landscape/culture to help them understand difference on a global and natural level. To be able to see Cinco De Mayo celebrations in Mexico City or experience the civil rights though a 360 degree surround movie can really be a powerful force in forming memory and learning content. Children who might have felt isolated when learning global/historical/scientific/ ELA content are now free to explore and engage on a new level.
