Has anyone tried an online field trip with a Tablet PC?
According to a study reported from wireservice reports by eSchoolNews (how’s that for less than primary data and interpretation; it seems interesting, maybe in part because it is so remote):
Students who used the [electronic field trips] performed better on the unit tests than the students using only traditional methods,” researchers found. Results also showed improved reading comprehension among poor and economically disadvantaged students.
Perhaps someone will tell us about student reactions and achievement by using such field trips, including these by ThinkPort.
Not labeled as a field trip, but this page has useful links for teachers.
