  8. 8. Practical aspects What‘s your aim using Geocaching: Starting a new topic? Motivating students? Acquiring skills? Creating a new learning product? Or other? Is there already a cache on this topic in your school town? Are there topic-related places in your region? Is there enough information available (online or in a library)? What kind of cache do you want to use (tradi, mystery, multi)? What size (micro, small, regular?) And why? And (maybe) most importantly: Who do you expect to search the cache (your students? Other students? General public?)

Technical aspects  Get the geo data for your cache:  → very easy: Google Earth (app or web browser)  Welche Geräte werden genutzt?  Choose your devices (smartphones or GPS devices)  Respect the general geocaching guidelines   Publishing the cache or not publishing?
