Since Google Expeditions was discontinued on June 30, 2021, Google redirects everyone to use the Google Arts and Culture app and presents it as a replacement for Expeditions.
Google Arts and Culture app include many of the experiences that were available on Google Expeditions. However, we at RobotLAB tried and tested the app and there are major differences and issues we wanted you to be aware of.
Our teacher partners have shared with us their thoughts on Google's alternative, and they all mainly agree:
Edtech tools can prove invaluable to teachers who have limited time to juggle planning, teaching, and grading.
Technology has advanced to the point where many tools, including AI technologies, can alert educators of danger before a disaster occurs.
Here’s how one Washington district has made coding a priority, even during the pandemic shutdown
If we want to close the gender gap in science, we need to look at the invisible forces that shape classroom culture.
Summer learning will play a critical role in students' return to full-time in-person learning this fall.
Diligence, a curious spirit, and perseverance are qualities we desire to see in our students. These traits are elements of the “growth mindset.” Teaching students coding presents one of the best opportunities to develop and nurture kids’ growth mindset in the school setting. This article shows five scenarios to support this position.

Discussing careers with students can be challenging. After all, a lot of weight is often placed upon the subject. As a teacher, you're expected to provide insights into potential careers that empower students to thrive beyond school.
In this regard, computer science can be a great area of discussion and exploration. It has increasing relevance in the current digital landscape. There is also a growing number of professions it can be applied to. These factors, among others, can make it an important consideration. Indeed, it is part of the reason that it is imperative to teach computer science in schools. Yet, it has something of a dry reputation. Students who may not be inclined toward the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) subjects run the risk of missing out on careers that enrich their adult lives.
So, how can you best go about setting students up for careers in computer science? Let’s take a closer look at some areas of consideration.
By asking students to explore the history of scientific discoveries, we get them to view their world with more wonder—and more skepticism—and condition their minds to think about causes and effects.
AI has incredible potential, but it will work best when the human element remains
