Destination Adventure: Virtual Field Trips that Won’t Disappoint!


  • Nancy Caukin


Who doesn’t love going on an adventure, seeing new sights, observing rare occurrences, talking to people from far away, and experiencing new things? Imagine the thrill students can have with doing things not before possible, all while deeply engaged and mastering academic standards. What about taking a trip to the Louvre in France, learning about corals in the Caribbean Sea, investigating ecosystems in Colorado, or learning about engineering by visiting an Amazon fulfillment center? Even if these may seem out of reach, each of these are possible via a virtual field trip. A virtual field trip (VFT) can be a great way to provide unique, one-of-a-kind experiences that will captivate students and provide meaningful, standards-aligned learning activities.
