Abstract: The rise of online technologies has led to students' learning activities and experiences no longer being limited by conditions such as administrative approval, rising cost, circumstances, or location. Students can use virtual field trips to interact with and learn authentically about people, places, artifacts, discover places of interest relevant to their topic of study, and customize education to their specific learning needs. Furthermore, learners frequently discover tools and resources valuable in the classroom and relate to the real world. Virtual field trips provide a national and global perspective to the content being studied as well as a real-world perspective to issues presented in course textbooks. This paper reviews the literature around the integration of virtual field trips in the K-12 classroom to improve student engagement and retention of material.
