"Auracaching": As a big fan of geocaching lessons, I have loved the results of getting students up and moving around as they learn various subject matter. For kinesthetic learners there is nothing better. Auracaching brings elements of geocaching in from the outdoors. Teachers or Students create auras about a particular unit or topic.

 

Each Aura (or station) should prompt an action from the participants. Then place the objects in various places around the room or building. The teacher then gives the students hints about where each aura can be found. Once each aura is found the student completes the activity prompted by the Aura.

There is no such thing as an eTeacher - only good and less good teachers. And some use more digital tools than others.
