Bring the World to Your Classroom

Take your students on a virtual field trip to the Lincoln Memorial.

Take your students on a virtual field trip to the Lincoln Memorial. (This one I found in the app!)

Traveling this holiday season? I love to take pictures when I’m on vacation, especially of landmarks or places I’m studying with my fifth graders. Students will be more engaged during a lesson about Mayan culture when they see a picture of you standing in front of Chichen Itza.

Take your travel photos to a new level by using the Tourwrist app. It allows you take a 360 degree panoramic view of any location and upload it using your iPhone or iPad.

If you’re not planning a trip to the Washington Moniment anytime soon, that’s fine too! TourWrist allows users to upload their pics and it’s easy to search and share them in your classroom.
