The Google Expeditions team has spent a month in Spain showing its new initiative for learning to more than 2,500 children from different cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Seville, Toledo, Valladolid and Valencia.
Discover the secrets of the seabed, travel through space, discover the hidden corners of famous museums or get to know the house where Cervantes lived, all without getting up from your chair. Google Expeditions is an application of virtual reality tours for education that allows students, through viewers such as Cardboard, to live adventures with detailed information about different points of interest and offers teachers suggested questions to integrate into the lesson.
On the occasion of this year’s celebrations of Cervantes, four new places have been recreated that children can explore such as the house where he lived in Alcalá de Henares, the port of Lepanto and the huge windmills that inspired the adventures of Don Quixote. For these new expeditions they have had the support of the national museum of natural sciences of Spain, as well as the collaboration of the ministers of education of Castilla y León, Andalusia and Castilla-La Mancha.
