Instructional Ideas
  • Include a soundtrack or other sound effects while showing the interactive to immerse scholars even more in the experience
  • Teach the lesson toward the end of the unit, so pupils understand the full context of the changes
Classroom Considerations
  • Requires Internet access or a way to project the interactive
  • Shows before, after, and a blended view in very clear photographic detail
  • Allows a 365-degree view
  • Does not allow users to zoom, and some of the features seem fairly far away
