Students split into groups and research (using the internet) local area. Collaborate and coordinate using wiki/ shared blog. Create a virtual tour, hosted on shared space. GPS devices to get from location to location. Connected mobile devices for SMS answers to location-related questions. SMS returns next clue (automated, time delimited, competitive). Or PSP to access web pages. MMS for mobile photo blogging – group contribution. Also twitter groups for collaborative problem solving and narrative of activity. Game-based learning activity, linking places and people. Each group participates in activity designed by other group. Race = competitive element. Physical treasure, ie prizes. [Gill Clough]
