  • "PACKAGED" FIELD TRIPS VERSUS "PERSONALIZED" FIELD TRIPSThe entire concept of the virtual field trip is a relatively new one. Unfortunately, not many of these online excursions currently exist on the Internet, and those that do exist are often filled with more "glitz" than with substance. Still, a growing number of sites are currently online, many of which can be incorporated into the curriculum in some fashion. Most of these "packaged" virtual field trips are sites which are already constructed and available online "as is" without personal curricular adaptations. Packaged field trips generally fall into three basic categories:COMMERCIAL SITES—These are sites that present a virtual experience in the hopes of either eventually selling the reader something, having the reader visit other commercial links connected to the site (where the products can subsequently be sold), or getting the reader to physically visit the location promoted. An example of this type of site would be the many virtual excursions to Hawaii.INFORMATIONAL SITES—These are sites usually prepared and maintained by organizations promoting a specific cause. These sites serve as a way for the organizations to present their particular point of view to the public, and to educate those who visit the sites. An example of this type of site would be the virtual excursions to a rain forest or to other various animal habitats.EDUCATIONAL SITES—These are sites constructed by students or teachers as a classroom or personal project. They cover a wide variety of topics. Although the quality of this type of site varies, the "hidden curriculum" on these sites is significantly more limited than that in the two categories above. Unfortunately, one significant drawback to these sites is that their longevity on the Internet is often limited. A quality site which a teacher discovered one day may be gone the next due to the completion of that particular Webmaster's class project. An example of this type of educational site might be an excursion inside a frog's body or to a particular time period or historical event.

  • Walter McKenzie defines it as...
    virtual fieldtrip:
    “A digitally vicarious experience that allows the participant to travel through space and time free of the constraints of real-world travel, including places, people and events that occur naturally throughout human and natural history.”
  • "Virtual field trips are computer-generated environments that offer media-rich interactions with a particular location, such as laboratories, museums, parks, zoos, even other countries."
    S. Stevenson says…
  • Laurie Fowler says it is
    a standards-based Internet activity which allows students to visit places and times that would not otherwise be possible.
    posted to the Internet in the form of a web page of links that a teacher wants her students to visit
    can encourage different kinds of learning activities like writing a descriptive paragraph, creating a travel brochure, keeping a travel diary, publishing an advertisement for the place visited,  making a PowerPoint “commercial” for the location, and many more.
