Why do we want it?

[Teacher to complete: You can build on or edit the text below to personalise your pitch and explain why you want the product. What difference will it make to your pupils? How will it benefit their learning and help them fulfil their potential?]

Global Treasure Apps are an incredibly versatile classroom tool that jumpstarts students into being active knowledge generators. The app is a great complement to classroom goals and the aims of the Curriculum.

Trail creation teaches students critical thinking, narrative skills, and technical skills and puts them in charge of their own learning. The young people create and upload the photos, audio, video and location based questions for the treasure trails.

When young people create their own interactive walking trail apps they gain a sense of ownership, which leads to appreciation and sustainability of tourism destinations, town centres and attractions.

Young people can also put an InApp purchase price on their treasure trails and raise money for charity.
