With Shakespeare’s Globe 360, students can step inside the famous Globe Theatre in England and discover how it was constructed, see what it would have looked like years ago, and learn about theater life in that time. Packed with interesting facts, videos, and photos, Shakespeare’s Globe 360 allows students to explore a virtual version of the world’s most iconic theater. The technology in the app uses the built-in camera in the iPhone or iPad. Pointing it at a marker prompts the Globe Theatre to appear on the screen. Students can move around the virtual theater, zoom in and out, and reveal the oak frame. They can venture through the oak doors and head inside, where they will be able to explore the theater as 360-degree images. Locations include an actor’s-eye view from the stage itself, backstage in the Tiring-house, the Musicians’ Gallery, and the Yard. Students simply tilt and move their device to look around. Cost: Free
