Abstract: Virtual field trips (VFTs) can be a compelling supplement or alternative to real-world field trips for students. By utilizing the latest technologies, educators can create and/or implement experiences for their students that are engaging, memorable, and relevant to target standards. Stoddard’s (2009) Conceptual VFT Model can be used to identify the characteristics of successful VFTs, while the MathCaching (, 2017) model can be used to integrate assessments and achievements into VFTs. This article provides an introduction to VFTs, a literature review of the topic, a tutorial on how to create a VFT, and a discussion of VFT implementation in a higher education classroom.
