Had a lovely sunny day again in Southend playing #catchaprompt with playful Southenders. The game consisted of collecting a map, which indicated points where prompts are set to work, then going out with METAL ipads and ‘catching’ them. Easy, fun and very helpful beta testing! It was great to see previous participants come back. One of the children who joined us back when we were still working out what goes where proudly announced to his family that he ‘made that’! We were also pleased when newcomer to the project told us it made them ‘walk the park and go places you don’t normally get to’- just the sort of feedback we need!
During the coming days we will be plotting and geo tagging some prompts we tested in low tech way last week (see images below). And by Saturday 7th May – we’ll be ready to beta test. We’ll be at METAL at Chalkwell Park so please drop in any time between 12-5pm to help us work out what’s in and what isn’t… If you’ve got an android phone you’ll be able to download the app straight onto your phone and if not we’ll have some tablets you can take out instead. We’ll also have the usual refreshments and it will be lots of fun- come and have your say!
