Education can be fun & cool? Yes!
All of these guided tours would be perfect for any history class, and several would also be great for geography students. An art series could start with Madrid’s Walk of Art, and if the focus is architecture there is The Art Deco Historical District of Florida’s South Beach.

TIP for Teachers from a Retired Teacher:
“How do you become an outstanding teacher? Use your imagination to capture theirs.If you remember a favorite teacher, you remember what was inspirational about them: it was the way they got their ideas across. At one point somebody realized you need a concrete object to help teach two plus two are four. So they started with apples and oranges, or Cheerios, and suddenly a complex concept became very clear. That’s why I’m so excited about seeing these tours on mobile phones. The kids are into all the electronic devices – they will take to them immediately and history will come alive.”
