Mis-Guide to Concordia University
On a daily basis, many students move within their school ground restricting themselves to a small space in which they are familiar and comfortable with. These students go without knowing the other campus buildings that surround them on a daily basis. Therefore, for our mis-guide to Concordia University we have decided to create a scavenger hunt game where students from Concordia go on an interactive or solo tour of the Loyola campus. They must visit eight different campus buildings, and must document proof of their visit by taking a picture with their electronic devices (cell-phone or camera). The student(s) will have to do a specific activity when taking this picture, a different activity for each building. The student(s) will be given a set of clues which will help them find the next campus building location they should visit.
This game should be performed in such matter to make the students become aware of the many different school grounds they are surrounded by everyday. This will help highlight the campus ground and project a different view of being in a school space. By taking a photograph, the students are marking their placement within this space. By having to follow a specific order in which they must visit each building, the student(s) will be more likely to be lead into this space rather than it being their choice. Our main goal is that the student(s) will not follow into a traditional tour within the campus, but rather they will be interactively learning about the different buildings, thinking which building has the clues characteristics, and digitally marking their space within their school grounds. We hope that the student(s) will be able to view their school campus in a new form, by remembering a buildings location by knowing its fun facts, or by simply looking at their photograph that marks their space within the campus.
