I used the new Photosynth app to create my first panoramic. It is a view of the FedEx Forum about an hour before tip-off at last night’s game. It was Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Playoffs between the Memphis Grizzlies and the San Antonio Spurs.
The Grizz won and lead the series 3-1!
The app is free, works easily, and the educational implications are exciting and interesting.
- Create virtual field trips
- Students can collaborate and develop virtual tours of a series of related landmarks, cities, etc. (Sites of the American Revolution, artworks from the Renaissance, and more).
- Bring new creativity to book reports, presentations, research, and much more.
