The event was organized by the &quot;<a href="http://edunauten.net/" target="_blank">Edunauten</a>&quot; which is a relatively new network to support mobile learning by providing links to appropriate tools, a map with concrete offers, organizations and renting options. The three days were organized in a barcamp style and offered lots of time for the exchange of thoughts and tools. On the second day several interested convention participants used the chance to try out the TidyCity authoring tools in order to built an example mission for the surrounding area. The participants that mostly had a pedagogical background were impressed how easy-to-use the tools were. On the third day the TOTEM.Designer and TOTEM.Scout were presented as more powerful tools for advanced users.</p> <!-- <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:trackback="http://madskills.com/public/xml/rss/module/trackback/"> <rdf:Description rdf:about="http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/170" dc:identifier="http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/170" dc:title="TOTEM presented on &quot;Learning with mobile media&quot; convention" trackback:ping="http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=trackback/170" /> </rdf:RDF> --> <div class="trackback-url"><div class="box"><div class="box-inner"> <h2 class="title">Trackback URL for this post:</h2> <div class="content"> http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=trackback/170 </div> </div></div> <!-- /box-inner, /box --> </div> http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/170#comments Mon, 08 Oct 2012 10:53:46 +0000 Lisa.Blum 170 at http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de Tidy City goes TV http://totem-project.fit.fraunhofer.de/?q=node/169 <p>Some camera crews also covered our Tidy City mission at PLACCC in Budapest.

It was a great experience and I think we created an interesting mission that does not focus on the famous sights (of which there are plenty in Budapest) but rather on local events and unusual history. The mission is available in Hungarian and English, so you can also try your luck when visiting Budapest next time. It might be a good idea to get a local to help though as otherwise riddles like this might be tricky:</p> <p><img src="/userfiles/4rid.jpg" width="400" height="300" align="left" hspace="20" alt="" /></p> <p><strong><em>Do not look at the girl!</em></strong></p> <p><em>Last straw?
