Georgia Virtual Learning Journeys
In more traditional approaches to learning, students have acquired knowledge through mostly text-only engagements. The use of virtual worlds that include text, images, audio, video, and a “feeling of presence” is allowing for more multifaceted, cross-curricular learning experiences. These virtual worlds encourage increased interactivity and empower learners to explore content at their own pace and level of interest.
In collaboration with Georgia Department of Education, Georgia Public Broadcasting produced a standards-based, virtual learning journey that transports students to a critical period of time in United States history. Brimming with comprehensive, cross-curricular content, including 14 videos, primary source images and documents, compelling photo galleries, interactive maps, artwork, music, and more, this virtual collection invites students into an engaging exploration of some of the most significant events of the Civil Rights Movement.
