Google announces Expeditions – a new way for teachers and students to use Cardboard

Expeditions
As part of their Google Cardboard 2.0 announcement, Google has also announced a new initiative aimed at schools – Expeditions.

Expeditions is a way to use Cardboard in a group format, allowing teachers to take students on a virtual field trip. Teachers control the virtual experience from a tablet, with students viewing the end results on their Cardboard headsets.

So far hundreds of classrooms have undertaken these virtual expeditions, which will feature content from partners such as the Planetary Society, American Museum of Natural History, the Palace of Versailles and more.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
