Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Engage students in a scavenger hunt where they can use phones or tablets (mobile app driven) to capture photos and videos proving they’ve solved one of the riddles. All artifacts get collected to a common dashboard for review. Students join teams and compete for points! Great for getting students to engage in teams with the world around them. Use this on field trips to engage students with what they see in a museum, the zoo, etc.
