15:47:21 From sbodger : Has there been any talk about using technology to add something like Pokemon Go, where, when you visit a site, you can look for an avatar to capture, like a warrior at a pa site, blue duck onthe awa etc?
15:47:37 From Barrie from LEARNZ : Suggested reading scaffold at the bottom of this page in the Support section - learnz.org.nz/support/learnz-reading-resource
15:49:20 From Barrie from LEARNZ : We have not used Pokemon Go but thanks for the idea. It could be something you could incorporate into your own activity at your location.
