These teachers are busy discussing at the BEACONING stand that we set up for this year’s School Managers’ Forum.
They are discussing about using game-based learning for adults; in particular, new teachers who are trying to adapt to a new school. BEACONING location-based gaming can engage these new recruits to get familiar with the school campus, and facilities that they may use in their respective courses. In fact, one of our pilot schools in Ankara/Turkey has already done just that. After using BEACONING with their students, the school management also decided to run a BEACONING location-based game for the starting week of the school year. This application not only helps the orientation of new teachers, but also makes them familiar with BEACONING so that they can use it in their classes with students. Making teachers effectively try their own medicine is a good idea.
