New Zealand Parliament Pāremata Aotearoa

Parliament 360° Virtual Reality Tours: school resource

This resource links images students have seen and heard on the Parliament XR app to activities aligned to Level 4 and 5 of the New Zealand curriculum. 

This school resource is to be used in conjunction with the Parliament XR virtual tours.  Parliament XR is a free downloadable app which allows students to watch virtual tours of Parliament on their smart phones or tablets.  Students can also use a headset that their phone slots into that can be obtained from the Education Team at Parliament.

This resource provides:

  • An overview about Parliament, a scavenger hunt based on one of the tours, and a short research activity on values behind some of the rooms/objects/artwork featured in the tour; and
  • An activity exploring features of our democracy, links to the virtual tour and a retrieval table that help to link back to features of democracy.
