Online scavenger hunts

There are amazing scavenger hunt and virtual field trip tools and apps available nowadays that can be used in and out of the the classroom. Of course, as always, you will need internet access if you want to use the apps out of the classroom in a non connected environment. It makes creating scavenger hunts easy as pie!!

Two handy online tools to create your own online scavenger hunt:
  1. Actionbound
    Actionbound is an app for playing digitally interactive scavenger hunts to lead the learner on a path of discovery. These multimedia based rallys are called 'Bounds'. The program quite literally augments our reality by enhancing peoples’ real-life interaction whilst using their smartphones and tablets. You can create a digital timeline of events or a places of interest tour, with the use of GPS coordinates and pre-placed codes and mysteries.

    It can be used for ice-breaking exercises, historical or archaeological sites, or more simply presenting a vision for the future. It offers gamification elements with tools like GPS locations, directions, maps, compass, pictures, videos, quizzes, missions, tournaments, QR codes and much more to create fun and exciting mobile app-based adventures.

    To go on an African safari, download the app and scan the QR code
  2. Ghoosechase
    Create missions using text, GPS log-ins, video and pictures to create your scavenger hunt.
