See you there! Should be a great afternoon!
Saturday May 14 Play Day & Picnic details below, hopefully allowing for a free-flowing time to relax and enjoy a picnic.

*Meeting time is 1:00 pm at this location in Yoyogi Park:
https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1qwc-AevC38zIdr9hbL354IrlalM

*Get to know each other icebreakers

*In groups go out to use street view to map parts of the park or local area

*Share out what we've created; learn to publish online

*Play with 360 video using Ricoh Theta; learn to AND publish 360 videos

*Discuss ideas for teaching and learning using the tools and devices

We will have a number of Google Cardboards to play with.

We're thrilled that we have a Ricoh Theta camera, thanks to +Dan Ferreira. I have also ordered a second one for my school, so if it arrives in time we will actually have two cameras to play with. *Dan is planning to purchase a new model and will sell his Ricoh Theta for 10,000 yen - a super deal. I'd have bought it myself if my school didn't order one.

We'll have a large blue tarp to set down, but feel free to bring your own. This is a picnic, so bring whatever snacks and drinks you please. We will have a few small things to munch on and drinks on hand. Frisbees are most welcome!

In advance you may want to be sure you have the Google Street View app downloaded, as well as a charged device. Also, you may want to download the Ricoh Theta app.

Last summer, my friend Dave and I crossed Nicaragua from the west coast to the east coast on foot. We followed the path of the proposed Nicaragua Grand Canal. The canal would be the largest earth moving project of all time, would cross through wildlife reserves, and Central America's largest freshwater lake. The environmental impacts are significant but at the same time the canal project could increase the economic situation of Nicaragua, currently the 2nd poorest country in the Americas, next to Haiti. Here is a trailer of the documentary:
