Eventzee in the Classroom
Scavenger hunts have always been a fun way to interact with others and support camaraderie, but we’ve moved past the limitations of pen and paper. Eventzee takes scavenger hunts to a whole new level by supporting worldwide events and new ways to interact with players. While Eventzee makes it easy to host your own scavenger hunt, it’s up to YOU to make it memorable. So if you’re considering putting on your own, here’s a few tips to get you started.
Every student learns differently, but all can make use of the fun and unique learning experience of our Eventzee EDU program. Digital Scavenger Hunts combine effective use of technology with higher level questioning while engaging students in fun, creative ways.

Denton ISD | Event: Denton TIA “Technology In Action” Conference
Eventzee offered us another dimension of engagement with attendees at our technology conference. We were able to drive traffic to specific areas of focus at our conference, enhancing the experience for everyone involved.
We were also able to, through the use of photo scavenger hunts, gamify self-reflection about new learning by encouraging attendees to share their learning through pictures. That was a huge game-changer for some of our attendees.

Prosper ISD | Event: Multiple Events
Eventzee EDU has been used in our 7th/8th grade ELAR classes as a semester review and to learn about an author’s life. It has also been used by our middle school Photojournalism classes as they learn about the different photo composition techniques.
Our Fashion Design and Marketing teacher used it on a field trip to North Park Mall to assess student’s learning in a real world environment. A 4th grade math teacher took his kids on a Division Hunt. 8th grade history used it to assess the understanding of the 7 principles of our Constitution. 7th grade ELAR took her kids on a mythology hunt.
Kids are engaged in higher level thinking skills as they connect their learning to real world examples. Teachers can provide instant feedback. It is a great formative assessment tool. Teachers can differentiate amount student or group submissions based on level of understanding.

Region 10 | Event: 21st Annual Region 10 Technology Conference
The Eventzee Crew helped run the event since we had over 500 participants at the conference. They were an awesome crew with their fun, bright suits and amazing personalities! Our goal for this event was for our participants (Educators in the Region 10 ESC area in Texas) to have some fun mixed in with their full day of learning and for them to see how this type of technology integration could be used in the classroom.
From the feedback we received, many districts determined that Eventzee was something they could take back to their students and use in the classroom. Eventzee is a wonderful tool to use in both the classroom as well as a professional learning environment. Two thumbs up!!
