Virtual Scavenger Hunting!

Submitted by Cynthia Booth & Liz McPhee

What challenge, problem or motivation inspired you to make one small change?

We had a scavenger hunt that was paper based and out dated. We wanted to use tech to facilitate part of the new student orientation.

Tell us about your one small change:

Using augmented reality (HP reveal technology), students were tasked with using an app to navigate and explore various services around Cambrian by using clues given when they hovered their phone over designated posters around the college.

What was the result of your one small change?

Students were engaged and provided good feedback about the scavenger hunt and had meaningful experiences. The developmental service worker students were put to an extra challenge by simulating an impairment (ie. wearing ear plugs to simulate a hearing impairment). This gave the students an experience of what it is like to live (briefly) with an impairment/disability.
