Sphere is in Session: Virtual Field Trips

Dan Smigrod

Video: Discover Sphere


The Sphere team is totally impressed by the enthusiasm we’ve seen from students and teachers.

Educators and their starry–eyed pupils are increasingly leveraging the free Sphere app (iOS, Android) for virtual field trips around the globe. “Teleporting in” is definitely one of the coolest ways to learn. Below are some examples of Sphere put to good use…

  1. Geography – places around the world / mapping / world landmarks
  2. Creative Writing – writing descriptions of places / story starters / narrative stories
  3. Language – talking about travel
  4. Social Studies – history / culture / world history
  5. Art – drawing places (change your perspective)
  6. Problem Solving – trip planning
  7. Science – ‘teleporting in’ to Mars

“[Sphere] allows students to view other parts of the world,” writes Corporate to Classroom: A Career Switchers Guide to Teaching Author Felecia Christian. “They can see landmarks, schools, businesses, entertainment, and other points of interest, all without leaving the classroom. It exposes them to elements beyond their community, circle of friends, and imagination. It shows them things that they may not see in everyday life and sets up discussions or comparisons of elements that are typical everywhere and elements that are not.”

Educators, please let us know if you’ve organized your own Sphere-supported virtual field trip. We’d love to share your story on the Sphere blog! If you’re not a teacher but you know one, thanks in advance for spreading the word.
