I'm crossing over with the Google Teacher Podcast!

Getting Virtual with Google
This free tool lets everyone create their own virtual tours to view in Google Cardboard and or in the Chrome web browser. Tours are created by selecting locations in Google Maps and then selecting 360 degrees Street View imagery. There’s also an option to upload your own 360-degree imagery.
Richard Byrne recently wrote about this and posted a video demonstrating how the tool works.
Matt Miller, from DitchThatTextbook.com, first appeared on episode 47 and Kasey Bell, the mastermind behind ShakeUpLearning.com, appeared on episode 21.
Since then, each of them has continued to make a positive impact on education, worldwide! They launched the Google Teacher Podcast in 2017 and this conversation and episode serve as a cross-over between our two shows.
