Earlier this week I attended the Innovations Conference in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to watching some great sessions on student engagement techniques, open educational resources, and storytelling in the classroom, I co-presented a session with Mark Fuentes (Accounting professor at PSCC) titled Sending Students on a Discovery Quest. We discussed our experiences building two scavenger hunt iOS applications that use QR codes and iBeacons to help students locating various offices and services on campus. Mark and I have been collaborating on the project for the past two semesters and have learned quite a bit along the way.

You can download a PDF version of the session Keynote presentation here. I plan on continuing development of the apps, so if you’re interested in offering something similar at your own organization, please get in touch!
