Ett isländskt företag som heter Locatify lanserar nu ett sådant spel som heter Turf Hunt. Lärare kan skapa egna spel genom verktyget Creator CMS och Locatify vill ha kontakt med flera skolor och lärare som kan tänka sig bidra till vidareutvecklingen.
- One of our main focuses when developing the game was to create an innovative educational tool. The game is aimed at different groups, adults, children, students, tourist, or just anyone who wants to have fun and maybe learn something at the same time. A game like this is a great tool to educate people about history, culture, nature or the geology of the place where the game is played. But it can also be used to promote services, team building or outdoor activity. Introducing and integrating games can improve traditional learning methods used in the classroom. By the use of modern technologies and natural surroundings in a learning process the students will gain new learning experience. Learning by doing is our focus. Locatify has created an innovative educational tool for teaching about nature, social sciences and humanities through play and fun outdoors.
