The Robot Tour

In our history and geography class on the 30.3.15, we were taken into a virtual tour by the Australian National Museum which is in Canberra. It was amazing to see the Robot and the tour guide interacting with the program. The museum robot would get us close to the artefacts to enable us to view the information about the items via the panoramic camera.

As a teacher i would use this in my classroom and my future teaching. The virtual tour is free and you will have to make an appointment. Teachers and parents could book a virtual tour by making an appointment and choose the topic that they would like to explore. I think the technology will allow teachers and the students to explore the museum with out going for an excursion.
