Google Expeditions is an immersive learning and teaching tool that lets you go on VR trips or explore AR objects. Explore historical landmarks, go down to the atomic level, get up close with sharks – even visit outer space! In the classroom or with groups, Google Expeditions allows a teacher acting as a ‘guide’ to lead classroom-sized groups of ‘explorers’ through VR tours or show them AR objects. Guides can use a set of tools to point out interesting things along the way. Users who aren’t in groups can also explore on their own, either in VR or AR.
Jamboard is G Suite’s digital whiteboard that offers a rich collaborative experience for teams and classrooms. Watch your creativity unfold: you can create a Jam, edit it from your device, and share it with others. Everybody can collaborate on the Jam anytime, anywhere. For businesses and schools that use Jamboard hardware, you can use your iPhone or iPad to join or open a Jam on a nearby board.
Just a Line
Just a Line lets you make simple drawings in augmented reality, then share your creation with a short video. Draw on your own or with a friend, then hit record and share what you made with #justaline.
