Geo Caching

After attending a great session on Geo Caching by Shauna Maggs of Groundspeak my wife and I went on to find our first cache together. I see a lot of potential for this in education: geography, science, history, english. In fact, I cannot see a subject which could not incorporate Geo Caching into a lesson. Shauna also introduced a new idea called WheriGo. WheriGo is an provides an opportunity for interactive field trips. It uses GPS and reminds me of the Web 1.0 game that most of use grew-up playing, Oregon Trail. Shauna provided us with some travel bugs and I plan on taking a couple with me to Italy and seeing if they can find their goals.

Enjoy your day,
