20201016T0925 20201016T1025 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh Deepening Learning with Virtual Field Trips as PBL

Virtual field trips allow students from K-16 to explore an essential question, discover answers, and deliver their own projects through a netquest. Similar to "webquests" that began around 2010, net quests today are easier to structure so that students can focus on gathering and interpreting knowledge for their projects, rather than just navigating the web. Despite a move to blended learning environments, savvy teachers create virtual field trips with contingency plans that can shift to 100% online when necessary. As an instructional coach, I will demonstrate how to brainstorm and structure virtual cross-curricular field trips using unit or lesson plans in a school's curriculum for 15 minutes. During the rest of the workshop, participants can actively follow the examples of two virtual field trips that I designed with free Microsoft and Google Sites as resource templates to begin creating their own virtual field trip. A resource page with outlines, tips, and rubrics will be provided for future use and reference. Participants will learn how to make virtual field trips so that their students can develop skills to access information from the virtual world and skills to collaborate with other students on projects. By the end of the conference, participants will understand the importance of virtual field trips and know how to create their own for their students.
