Go to Virtual Field Trips at iTunesU to begin your exploration. You can also do a search for virtual field trips at the iTunes Store.
The podcasts (audio and video) in iTunesU are free, of course. Some of the apps in the App Store are free; others are not. The most expensive app I saw was $5.99. The podcasts (audio and video) at iTunesU include the categories of museums, historic sites, national parks, libraries, and performing arts. The apps include the same categories except that I did not see any libraries apps. However, when I visited the App Store I did find libraries apps, including a virtual tour of the Library of Congress.
As I explored I watched a mummy being rewrapped, heard a ranger tell some funny stories about Theodore Roosevelt, saw interesting videos of the Everglades, had access to key documents of the Civil War, and watched a fascinating interview of Andre Previn. Whether you’re thinking about a virtual field trip or simply looking for interesting, authentic resources for your classes, I think it’s worth investigating virtual field trips at iTunesU.
