Build an Interactive 360/VR Tour of the Smithsonian at #ISTE2016

Would you like to help us build a 360/VR interactive tour of the Smithsonian at ISTE? You’re invited to stop by the Dell Learning Lounge, located near the Blogger’s Cafe, to try ThingLink’s newest tool.

Teachers and students are invited to join me and Naomi Harm for a 30-minute session in the Dell MakerSpace where we will work together to design an interactive 360/VR image tour of the Smithsonian. We’ll begin with breathtaking panoramic images of one of the world’s most fascinating museum and we will use the ThingLink VR tag editing tool to add interactive layers of artifacts to bring the image to life through text, images and video. Then we’ll explore ways to turn the resource into standards-based lessons that will engage students like never before! Stop by in between sessions to chat.
