This is a really interesting development, following on from the "Granny Cloud" experiment. The idea of self-directed learning is obviously not new, but the way of using technology to bring together groups of learners for different purposes is extremely thought-provoking.

Thanks, Nik Peachey, for the link.

GooseChase - How It Works

GooseChase - How It Works | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Photo proof is required to receive points for a mission. Luckily, our smartphone apps make completing a mission incredibly easy.
Just select the mission you want to complete from the mission list, take a picture with the phone's camera and press the submit button. You'll receive the points right away, but remember that all photos are subject to review. This means that you can lose those points at any time if the photo isn't good enough.


Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a great tool for creating situated learning that gets students out and about exploring the environment.
