ENGAGE GENERATION Z WITH OUR iHTs
Our Interactive Heritage Trails (iHTs) utilize location-based learning by streaming site-specific information to students such as oral history accounts, photographs and videos, creating a multi-sensory experience.
During the trail, students will engage in a variety of learning activities (games, puzzles and quizzes) embedded on the mobile devices. Students actively learn through performing open-ended tasks such as composing photographs and video clips.
