Xnote– Xnote is a virtual geocaching app that lets parents, teachers, or students virtually hide notes, pictures, and scavenger hunt assignments anywhere. The app lets users virtually hide their message anywhere with just a few clicks. Simply create a message (text or photo), virtually hide it by choosing a spot on the map and send it to your intended recipient. Recipients can’t view the message until they have physically moved to the selected map location. Multiple messages can be combined to create scavenger hunts, tours, or quiz walks. Great for getting children outside and moving, Xnote can also be combined with classroom content to create outdoor learning activities.
Co-ordinates– This app incorporates practical tasks with the teacher’s participation and can be used for children between ages 5 and 14. It introduces five key areas that are needed to read maps; these skills are intended to acquaint students with the prerequisites for map reading.
Map My Run– Map My Run is designed to get you started or help you continue your fitness journey. It will record and follow in real time as you run. It will sync with your mobile device’s Global Positioning System (GPS) and record where you go. With activities to log, such as running, cycling, walking, workouts, yoga, and more, Map My Run will also provide you with pace, route, traveled distance, calories burned, and more. If you need motivation or just a way to keep track of your activity, this app can be helpful.
