How I Use It
I would have students use this app to locate hidden caches near/around your school or community using the app/GPS. Young children especially enjoy it, however most older children have already been exposed to this and may find it childish.
My Take
This is a great tool to use with younger children to help them understand GPS technology (especially that which is in our phones). You could use it once to expose the children and encourage them to use it at home with their friends and families.
