Open the GooseChase app. Only ONE MEMBER of the team clicks “Sign up with Email” at the bottom of the screen.
Create ONE account for your team (no more than five members per team) that follows this protocol:
Username: Team name with your district initials
(e.g., “falconsHSD” or “thewebtoolsHDESD”)—or, if your teammates are from different districts, get creative!
Password: Create any password.
Email address: Pick an email address from one member of your team.
After the first team member signs up, EVERYONE on your team can now log in on their own device using the SAME team username and password—simply download the GooseChase app and select “Already have an account? Login” at the bottom of the home screen. Now all teammates have access to the team account from multiple devices at once!
Join the game by searching for “AcceleratED 2016” using the search button.
Play the game! Photo proof is required to receive points for a mission—select the mission you want to complete from the mission list, take a photo or video with your phone’s camera, and press the submit button. Whenever someone completes a mission, the photo is added to the activity feed and the rankings are automatically updated.
After photos have been reviewed, the team with the highest points will be announced following the event’s closing keynote and awarded their prizes!
