GooseChase: Digital Scavenger Hunts for the Classroom!

WHO: Teachers looking for engaging opportunities increase teamwork in the classroom while demonstrating content comprehension.

HOW: Teachers create a “GooseChase” full of activities and content from their class (or choose a pre-made set). These activities can be solving a text-based question, taking a picture of a teammate completing a challenge, or recording a video of the team working together to demonstrate their knowledge and/or skills.  There are activities that are already built-in to the GooseChase platform, but it is very easy to create your own.  After creating the game, teachers will then launch the game and invite students to join using the iOS or Android app.  Once the GooseChase is set into motion, participants are able to see the missions to be completed, view the leaderboard, and see what the other teams have submitted in the Activity Feed.  After the game has been completed, submissions can be reviewed as a class or individually.  The leaderboard keeps score so that the teacher can recognize the winners at the end if they choose to.

WHEN:  GooseChase is useful as an icebreaker activity to begin the school year, teamwork exercise for content review, or as a reward for exceptional classroom behavior.
