Google Cardboard is here to stay. RMIT has produced 5000 RMIT branded Google Cardboards to provide a virtual orientation day for country students who otherwise won’t make it to open day. Called Discover RMIT it’s a pretty cool app with an embedded quiz to help students find their way to appropriate programs. You can download the apps on itunes or the play store.
But wait there’s more…
We have heard that there is another project afoot giving 100,000 cardboard sets to prospective students. If prospective and new students are going to be turning up with Google Cardboards, we think it is important that staff are prepared as well. We have some sets to give away. All you have to do is let us know, in the comments below, your idea for what you think Cardboard could be used for in learning and teaching.
Yesterday I gave a presentation to our library staff on Libraries and Innovation. I asked for their ideas on how they might use Cardboard. Here are some of their ideas.
I am thinking about students using Google cardboard to browse picture books, develop games, combine a variety of curriculum materials to create innovative lessons etc. Possibilities are probably endless. June Frost
Use google 360 / cardboard to highlight items from the Library’s special collection. Joanne Gillespie
