During the Istanbul exclusive BEACONING event, there were three sessions during which game-based learning and the BEACONING solution was presented. Now, these key presentations are available online for the 300,000 teachers in Turkey, who are active users of the Vitamin CPD portal.
ABC school opened its doors just this school year. Their educational approach involved active learning and so they established 15 workshop spaces on various topics, in their premises. This was fertile ground for BEACONING. Geolocation games with beacons are prepared for students during which they would discover facilities in various workshops. After the initial trials and teachers fine-tuning of the game challenges, the games are scheduled later in May, during festival week.
One of the largest private school networks in Turkey, Mektebim schools attended the BEACONING Istanbul event and later followed up with an exclusive interview. At the interactive session during the interview, BEACONING web site and accessibility features were examined. As a result, Mektebim booked a pilot with BEACONING geolocation games. The pilots in Mektebim Istanbul schools are scheduled in May. Middle School students at grades 6 and 7 will be the participants and the subject is chosen to be the properties of water.
