Vivid Digital Education are involved in a venture with digital games makers Locomatrix in the dissemination of Invisible Buildings, a simulation of an archaeological dig using Android smartphones and tablet devices in the outdoors.
Most recently, Mick and Locomatrix MD Richard Vahrman trained a group of teachers at Westfields Junior School in Yateley in the running of the simulation. The school then ran the simulation with around 90 year 5 pupils as the first activity of the Autumn term, to introduce the topic of the Romans.
This proved to be a great success invoking feedback like:
‘Just to let you know we have had another successful day today! Both classes have absolutely loved the days and have been really inspired about the Romans! All equipment has worked perfectly!’
