Using handhelds to promote environmental stewardship

Abstract

Rockman <i>ET AL</i> (REA), a San Francisco-based research and evaluation organization conducted a formative evaluation of KQED's pilot educational outreach activity, <i>Questing. Quests</i> are treasure hunts in which a participant reads a "movement" clue in order to get from one spot to the another and "teaching" clues at certain stopping points along the path, using GPS-enabled handhelds. The <i>Questing</i> project involved training educators how to teach their students to create <i>Quests</i> in their local area in an effort to promote environmental stewardship and learning in science and technology.
