AASL Best Websites & Apps: Google Spotlight

Each week the Teaching and Learning Committee plans to highlight one app or website from either the 2018 AASL Best Apps for Teaching and Learning or the 2018 AASL Best Websites for Teaching and LearningShare with any stakeholders who may benefit! 

Want some holiday season entertainment? Try getting a VR headset (Google Cardboard is a cheap option) and play Google Spotlight! I have used this as an extension during makerspace time and it is fascinating to watch. Many of the stories are available on YouTube as well.

Description from AASL:

This app puts the reader in the middle of a growing number of virtual reality stories and demonstrates new possibilities for interactive storytelling. Each of the stories is a 360 video experience to be viewed within a VR viewer or on a device or screen. Users are prompted to download a story before reading for easy repeat access. Among the elementary stories are The Windy Day, Buggy Night and Duet. The reader focuses attention on the scene, with the story adjusting and presenting a personalized experience.

Platform: iOS, Android   Grades:Upper Elementary – High School
