    Take it Outdoors Series: The One with the Goose (Goosechase/Geocaching)

    Model School Webinar

    Spaces - whether indoors, outdoors, virtual, or in person - are worth considering as part of the instructional design process. There's also an intrinsic value to being outdoors: it's good for students' social, emotional, and mental well-being, even more so as they return to school after several traumatic months. Having students learning outdoors is not new, and mobile technology has given all of us plenty of reasons to enjoy the great outdoors. In this second of a series focusing on learning outdoors with technology, we will dive deeper into using Goosechase and Geocaching apps in various disciplines.
