GPB is traveling all over Georgia to bring our state's rich history and culture to teachers and students. We are creating virtual, interactive field trips highlighting important Georgia locations, like the Native American Indian Mounds, Providence Canyon, the Chieftains Museum, the Little White House in Warm Springs, and many more. Over the next two years, GPB will work with the most knowledgeable and engaging historians and tour guides throughout the state to create virtual field trips of consistently high quality. Each field trip brings the location to life with interviews, 360-degree panoramic photography, interactive elements, discussion prompts, and videos. Teachers will be able help students explore these historic locations by accessing the virtual field trips through the web and tablets. The field trips also align with the Georgia Performance Standards for 8th grade social studies, as well as the content from GPB’s Georgia Studies Digital Textbook.
