360° Virtual Reality Video for the Classroom - Youtube

A new way to watch video

Now that you can watch 360° video from Youtube on the iPad, I think we will see an uptick in the number of videos available in this new format. The strength of 360° video, is that you can "pan the camera", follow specific parts of the action and have an immersive experience without expensive VR goggles. Simply hold up the iPad, play the video and the accelerometer built into the device lets you look around as if you were looking through a window at the action. Watch sports events, nature videos and science clips like you've never seen them before! (The link above offers samples to explore.)
