We all strive to help history come alive for our students. One proven strategy is to have students engage in experiences that put them right in the action, whether it’s ancient ruins of great civilizations or those more aligned with modern historical developments. The constraint that we face, however, is the ability to have students actually travel to these places. Virtual tours make that possible. Teachers have never before had the opportunity for students to engage in virtual tours like they do today. Not only can students visit historically relevant locations, but also enter and explore many of the world's most exclusive museum and cultural centers, right from a device! Let’s take a close look at practical ways that history teachers can help foster student engagement through virtual tours.
