"Scout out the world"

Learn about the countries of the world by...

- Tapping on regions of the map.
- Reading about the selected region.
- Searching to highlight a region (~176 countries).
- Find the prompted region to test your knowledge
- Your results are tallied and quiz reports can be emailed to a teacher.

The EdScout Series helps students learn by locating different regions through zooming, panning, tapping, and reading. The app was developed specifically to help our children learn about world geography. We also wanted to capture "low-stakes" assessment quiz reports to help us baseline their knowledge for additional teaching. Through daily and weekly assessment we can then gauge their improvement and keep a record of their progress via quiz reports.

"EdScout empowers the student to scout out answers on a map through exploration."
To answer a question: The child "scouts" out the region across the map and taps on the region itself versus pick an answer from a pick list or a limited set of multiple-choice answers. The app presents an interactive real-world picture where context to oceans and continents are maintained and a student must pick from many possible regions. For example we wanted to simulate teaching from a wall map or book... where a teacher asks students to find a country or state by pointing at the map... In EdScout the tapping on the map triggers a pop-up label and educational content.

Geographic context is maintained.
EdScout adds multi-dimensional learning to assessment by:

Exploring through panning and zooming so it becomes more than just a quiz and more a "hunt" for the answer...
Answering questions through tapping on a 2-dimensional image versus a set of multiple choice answers
Providing supplementary educational material for learning, to improve cognitive reading skills, whether the child has answered incorrectly or correctly
Typing and Searching for a region which will automatically zoom in and highlight the region, building basic typing skills, plus the student can then zoom-out to understand the neighboring regions, continent, etc..
