"This is really cool and it builds connections from the field trip to what's going on back at school. It's a great way to cement learning."
Play the Past is a new and engaging student-directed field trip experience supported by technology. Students use iPods to explore the Then Now Wow exhibit. Through critical thinking and collaboration, they earn badges and collect digital items for later use. Back at school, the interaction continues. You and your students can build on the experience through further research and classroom activities.
A digital backpack is an online collection that reflects each student's individual field trip experience. The items students earn and collect while on their field trip are immediately available online through their personalized account.
On the day of your visit, you will receive both a printed card and an email that will provide access to your group's digital backpacks. Contact us with any questions or needs at firstname.lastname@example.org
