Application of Virtual Field Trips to Increase Agricultural Literacy of Youth

Virtual field trips have become an alternative to physical field trips, while still achieving the same goals. In many instances, this is a free method of education that also saves time for teachers and schools in preparation and travel.

For years, physical field trips have been a hands-on, interactive educational method to enhance student knowledge and perception on various topics. Students can gain a lot from these experiences including interacting with professionals, connect classroom lessons to real-world examples, and engaging with real-world examples to increase interest and awareness of the topic. Today, schools face limited budgets and often times can’t afford to send students on field trips. Therefore, students are limited to a traditional classroom setting for learning, even though students are typically more interested in a hands-on approach to learning. Recently, some technologies have emerged as effective, new educational tools. Virtual field trips have become an alternative to physical field trips, while still achieving the same goals. In many instances, this is a free method of education that also saves time for teachers and schools in preparation and travel. Youth of today are regularly exposed to countless forms of digital environments such as games on iPads and watching television or YouTube videos. Virtual field trips engage students in a method of education that they are already comfortable with. At the same time, agricultural literacy of the general public is very low. Consumers are so far removed from the farm that they are not educated on agricultural practices and or where their food comes from. Consumers utilize online resources such as Google, YouTube, and their social media, to learn about various topics, including agriculture. Consumers, particularly students, are not motivated to actively seek out information and learn about agriculture, because they are not in a setting where they are able to engage with it. It is important for agricultural professionals to share their personal story to change perception and increase awareness. Several agricultural advocacy organizations have designed and hosted virtual farm trips, and each organization has taken its own approach. Some of these organizations choose to work with other stakeholders for this effort, some run this operation in-house and a few have only taken part for a short amount of time and found themselves stepping away from the program. This was a case study of four agricultural advocacy organization’s virtual field trip programs. These organizations, the Ohio Pork Council, the American Dairy Association Mideast, the Ohio Soybean Council, and the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, created and implemented their virtual field trip program within the last six years. While the programs were similar with their purpose to increase agricultural literacy, they differed in platform, design, audience, and supplemental educational materials. A quantitative survey was sent to ten teachers who took part in a virtual field trip program at one or more of the organizations. Based on the results of the survey, teachers chose to include this program into their curriculum to increase student knowledge of agriculture and introduce their classes to career opportunities. Teachers chose to incorporate this program into their classrooms because it was convenient and aligned with curriculum standards. Teachers also reported while they like that virtual field trips benefit their students, they wished it included more hands-on aspects to increase likeliness of student understanding of agriculture. This research could provide agricultural advocacy organizations, their collaborators and teachers with information to improve on the virtual field trip design(s) to best impact youth education and ultimately increase agricultural literacy.

Web Hunts and Virtual Field Trips

Much of this will depend on your school's philosophy about Internet use. Most
schools have a requirement that students have some kind of supervision while
they're online. That supervision might be peer supervision or adult supervision.

The purpose of this report is to explore the research and the development process of virtual field trip experiences through the creation of a 360 degree virtual field trip. Virtual field trips are emerging learning experiences that are being created to provide students access to locations and areas that might have been inaccessible in the past due to factors such as funding, student location, and safety. With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting education and learning experiences across our world, the importance of digital learning and access to quality virtual leaning has become even more important. Virtual field trips provide students with interactive virtual tours that can be enabled to be viewed as a fully immersive virtual reality experience. The virtual field trip created for this report is a tour of a dry underground cave that will serve as an example of the types of experiences that can be created to support classroom learning. The report introduces virtual field trips, describes the development process, explores the possible impact on creators and viewers, and discusses the limitations of this report and implications of integrating virtual field trips in education

The COVID-19 pandemic has shed light on how much humans rely, more than ever before in our history, on technology. While technology in its simplest definition is the use of a tool for a practical purpose, in the last three decades, educators can confidently say it has revolutionized how information is communicated and accessed. Most importantly, educators who had to recently shift their classes online understood the important role of technology to stay connected and instruct students remotely. There are many different facets of technology in today's classrooms and ideas on where educators are headed in preparing their students for a technology-rich world. With new technologies being constantly developed and new scenarios rising to the surface in the educational environment, the future of technology in the classroom is widespread, consistently growing, and always advancing with more technological reliance. Emerging Realities and the Future of Technology in the Classroom provides an understanding on how technology is integrated into today's classroom and how institutions can be further informed of the importance of technology in today's world. This book examines a variety of pertinent topics that look at the present and future potential roles of technology in the classroom. While highlighting topics such as STEM in online education, leadership and technology, new instructional models in online learning, and gaming in education, this book is essential for teachers across all disciplines and in higher education and K-12, school administrators, principals, instructional designers, librarians, media specialists, educational software developers, educational technologists, IT specialists, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the current status of technology in the classroom and its potential role in education for the years ahead.

A Synthetic Learning Environment (SLE) the Virtual Field Trip (VFT) was designed to increase vocabulary acquisition and knowledge by utilizing simulation based technologies and leveraging sound educational findings. Vocabulary acquisition is considered a prerequisite to becoming a good reader and therefore a critical predictor of academic and lifelong success for early learners, however, teachers report that students lack the real world knowledge required for vocabulary knowledge. The VFT provides a meaningful context for anchored and situated instruction. Second grade students were assigned to either use the VFT or to listen to stories read aloud by a researcher on a video tape. While results did not indicate significant vocabulary acquisition on a series of 3 vocabulary tests; students who used the VFT did use significantly more words in a post exposure writing sample than students in the story group indicating an increase of words known at a level of depth sufficient to warrant their use in a writing sample. Students who used the VFT also reported increased motivation to use SLEs like the VFT for future learning objectives and that VFTs were fun. Findings related to the self-efficacy of students as measures immediately following each vocabulary test did not reveal a significant increase for VFT users. Students using the VFTs did not report learning more words than those students assigned to the story group. Limitations of the current study and directions for future research are discussed.
