Encourage citizen scientists

Project Noah Project Noah makes great use of mobile technology and is well suited to upper primary, junior secondary students. It is an app which is designed to help them discover their local environment. There are awards to be earned and an opportunity to see how others who belong to the project are doing. The app is colourful and clear. Students can help identify finds but also discover things as well. They can participate in challenges and generally learn how to share information online and then see what can be done with that information. They can see that by collaborating and taking on challenges they can contribute to research and a wide body of  global knowledge. The app is free and ran really well on my iPad but it would suit a smart phone easily and so contribute to making good use of those expensive pocket devices. Great believer in developing ideas and challenges for mobile technology so that students have better options for use.
