Geocaching & Technology for Outdoor Education

Presented by: Tony Sweeney

This workshop looks at the use of ICT in Outdoor and Adventure activities. It will focus on Geocaching, a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
