5 Ways to Spice Up Learning with Digital Scavenger Hunts

January 20, 2021

Christine Snyder

Screen fatigue is running rampant for many, but it’s particularly real for teachers and students. Supported by SquadLocker, the Multipurpose Room podcast is hosted by strategic partner K-12 Clothing, a PTA-Dad created business that provides high-quality school apparel while increasing access to educational resources. Hosts Wesley Jones and Debora Jones talk with various guests who have lots of ideas for educators during these challenging times.

 

Who doesn’t love games?

In a recent episode, “Fun K-12 School Scavenger Hunt Ideas,” guests Eric Chiang and Joe Denomme provide different ways to use digital scavenger hunts in education. Eric and Joe are with GooseChase Adventures, an online platform that helps organizers create and run digital scavenger hunt experiences through players’ mobile devices.

 

To combat screen fatigue, use online scavenger hunts to:

  • Aid in-class learning in any subject
  • Review class material – over the last week, month, quarter, or year
  • Take test review to a whole new level
  • Give a pop quiz disguised as a game
  • Go on a field trip anywhere in the world!

 

Scavenger hunts can last for an hour or take place over days, inspiring competition, collaboration, and engagement. Pre-built games are available that other teachers have built and made available for others’ use. A library of questions makes creating your own custom game fast and easy.

For more ideas to bring subject matter to life in your K-12 classroom with digital scavenger hunts, listen to the full episode here. For more information on GooseChase, visit:
