Educaching

Synopsis

Educaching - Students at Woodland School in Barrington learn about GPS technology through a treasure hunting activity called educaching. Educaching melds geocaching with education. Geocaching is a worldwide game of hiding and seeking treasures. A geocacher places a geocache somewhere in the world, and locates it using GPS technology and then shares the geocache's existence and location on line. The project uses language arts, math, geography and logic skills. It combines treasure hunting, puzzles, logic skills, writing, and creativity for gifted and talented students. This project is made possible through an NEA Learning and Leadership Grant.
