When users find a video of interest, they can view it by tapping it. When first viewing the video, it plays as normal. Users are able to tap the “Sunglass” icon on the bottom right of the screen to move into virtual reality mode. (When entering virtual reality mode, users will need to put on a headset for maximum effect.) When in virtual reality mode, users can turn their heads to view the video in 360 degrees. When finished viewing the video, users will need to tap the screen and then tap the back button to return to the video database.

Please Note: There is some adult content on this app. Teachers are advised to pre-select videos for students and load them onto their devices for viewing.

Instructional Ideas

  1. For a descriptive writing activity, teachers can load a video onto a device for students and have students view it. After viewing it, students can then write a paragraph to describe their favorite scene from the video, how they felt viewing a video in virtual reality, or a lasting image they recall from the video. After writing their paragraph, students can share it with a classmate to receive feedback.
  2. After teaching a lesson about a topic, teachers can use this app to find, load, and show students a video related to that topic. For example, if the lesson was about inertia, students could watch a video about rollercoasters. Or, if the lesson was about marine biology, students could view a video about sharks. After watching the video, students can explain how the lesson’s topic was reflected in the video. For instance, teachers could ask students how rollercoasters use inertia or how other animals react to sharks swimming by them.
  3. Teachers can create a compare and contrast activity using this app. To do so, teachers can select one video and play it for students on the projector. Next, teachers can have students view that same video on their headset as a virtual reality video. After viewing the video in both forms, teachers can have students explain which version of the video they most enjoyed, how the standard video was similar/different to the virtual reality version of the video, and which video was most engaging to view. At this point, teachers can have students complete a Venn diagram, write a paragraph that compares the two videos, and/or engage in a class discussion related to these topics.
