Actionbound – Education on the go

Actionbound is an interactive smartphone hunt. With the Actionbound app, you can take part in exciting, fun and informative Bounds. The principle is similar to a classical scavenger hunt or geo-caching, but it also includes media files, internet, and player-created content.

Download the Actionbound app onto your mobile device. It is available for iOS and Android devices.

Multiple Bound players use one smartphone together. They will play as a team to achieve a good result. The optimal group size is three to six Bound players. At least two Bound players are required.

You will need to get to the place on the map and when you are there, there will be a question on your phone screen. Once you answer the question you will get points.

If you answer correctly, you will get points. If not, you won’t. It doesn’t matter how fast you do it, you need to get the correct answers.

If you want to create your own Bound, you will need to log in. Some Bounds might be with a QR – code. With QR – code you need to get to the code, scan it and then the question will appear.

You don’t need internet connection to play the bound because the Bound’s media content will be preloaded. This applies to all content– quests, text, images, videos and sounds uploaded to Actionbound’s media library.

Google Earth – Educational Content and Toolbox

Educational Content in Google Earth / Voyager

You propably allready know Google Earth (or Maps) as a tool to easily travel the world with satelite-imagery and loads of user-contributed photos. Maybe, you also used the great educational content that you’ll find in the Voyager-Section of Google Earth.

If you plan to embed the site into your geography lesson, however, consider taking the next step and use it to develop your own content: Google Earth / Projects

With Projects, you or your students can pick places around the world and write their own commentary to educate their future audience.

See the quick example, some of our students created during the mobility in germany: Parks Around the World
