Spanish II students visited Spanish-speaking countries on virtual reality (VR) field trips using VR goggles and cellphones. Students began their Design Cycle Experience (DCE) thinking about all the information one needs before traveling to a new country for the first time. In groups, students selected a country to research and developed a presentation and brochures designed to persuade the rest of the class to travel there. For the last step of their DCE, students virtually visited the countries they learned through their VR goggles. They experienced an array of sites including Machu Pichu in Perú, the Moai of Easter Island in Chile, the Patagonia between Argentina and Chile, Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, Torres del Paine in Chile, Cartagena in Colombia, several rainforests in Costa Rica, the Tikal in Guatemala, the Angel Falls in Venezuela, La Sagrada Familia in Spain, San Juan Puerto Rico, the Malecón in Havana Cuba, and more.
