Google Expeditions - a replacement for field trips or dissections?

Hello! My name is Brittany Wells and I am a first year student at Xavier University. In my Instructional Technology class we recently had a demonstration of Virtual Reality technologies and read about the classroom implementation of it. For those of you who have or haven't used it in your classroom what has or what do you anticipate being some limitations of VR? Can it replace live dissections or enhance it as an introduction to the concepts? Does it qualify as a field trip?
Thanks!

Brittany, it would be a virtual field trip without having the hassle of getting permission, buses, and lunches. The things that would prevent us from using it would be lack of equipment! (headsets, enough iPads)
