Photoquest with eLearning Consortium of Colorado and EDUCAUSE
On Friday morning at the 2018 EDUCAUSE conference, we participated in the Photoquest with the EDUCAUSE Games and Learning Constituency Group. eLCC’s awards committee chose the top three for each category which you can see on these Google Slides! This was a fun mobile learning activity, but keep thinking how could you add this to a course development?
All eLCCers have been invited to join Educause’s Game & Learning Community’s November Book Club.
Read or re-read Reality is Broken and discuss during three Wednesday in November.
November 7, 4 and 21, we’ll be discussing it over twitter using the hashtag.
Tweetchats will take place from 430 pm – 530 pm MT.
Discussions are moderated by @GamerrLinguist and will use the hashtag #Read4Games.
We’re doing a pervasive game with Educause’s Games & Learning Constituency Group at the 2018 conference in Denver. It’s a photoquest using the mobile app GooseChase.
The photoquest starts at Big Blue Bear at the Colorado Convention and ends at the Tivoli on Auraria Campus.
It opens at noon on Wednesday October 31 and closes Friday November 2 at 10 am.
You can play on your own anytime from now until 10 am on Friday.
If you would like to join us we’ll be doing the photoquest at 9 am on Friday November 2nd. We’ll meet at the Big Blue Bear and we’d ask that you RSVP so we will look for you.
If you would like to go it on your own download the mobile app GooseChase. Make a quick account and then look for our photoquest which is named Educause Games & Learning Photoquest. Our game code is NJEBK1.
There are 5 missions to this game which comprise taking pictures and posting them to twitter using the hashtags #edu18 and #photoquest.
We (eLCC) will be sending our eLCC plushies to 5 of the photoquest posters. The eLCC Awards Committee with help from a few other eLCC members will be doing
a judge’s choice for each of the photos.
If you would like to know more about how we created this photoquest or a template of how to do – contact Kae Novak email@example.com
We will be doing a retreat recap and the planning we didn’t get to at our annual retreat this Friday, October 19, 2018.
If you can join us virtually on Friday October 19th then please RSVP.
We’re using Eventbrite as a RSVP so you receive an email reminder.
You can also go directly into the Zoom Meeting.

We won’t be having a eLCC monthly meeting in August. Our next eLCC meeting will be our yearly retreat in September. So if you’d like to hang out with other eLCC members, your next opportunity will be this Wednesday August 1 or Thursday August 2 at the Colorado Learning and Teaching with Technology Conference (COLTT) at the University of Colorado-Boulder Campus.
Let us know what you are presenting!
Here’s the schedule of events. If you are attending or even better presenting, please let us know. We know already that a number of our members will be doing tech as both Office Hours on Wednesday and yes – the Lightboard is back on Thursday in the Idea Forge.
If you want to follow the conference on twitter, the hashtag is #COLTT2018. I think you could also throw in a second hashtag of #ELCC too!
We’re doing a Tech Trek for professional development at eLCC’s July 27th meeting.
Our first ever Tech Trek from 10 am – 1130 am MT will start in Zoom.
You’ll log into our Zoom BaseCamp between 10 am – 10:20 am.
Promptly at 10:30 we’ll start our Tech Trek.
We will climb as far as we can get by 11:30 am.
We start in Zoom, go to Google Hangout on Air Live, Discord,
then go to a FlipGrid grid, a Kahoot Quiz and end up on Periscope
Before the trek, please update your Chrome browser
2) Having a second screen will make sure you can stay in touch with Basecamp and participate in events
3) A mobile device would be nice to use with Flipgrid, Kahoot and Periscope
