Assistant Professor Mike Horning put together a journalist’s “scavenger hunt” game for the BGSU Center for Teaching and Learning Fair. He used a mashup with Google Forms, Fusion Tables and Geolocation. The basic idea is that students complete a series of tasks over the semester using their phones and social media. The completed game puts their work on a Google Map. The demo is still in development, but you can see it here. Click geolocation and it should find out where you are. Copy paste those coordinates into Google maps to see if it works.
Mike plans to integrate the game into his reporting courses.
