Abstract

Geotagger is a collaborative environmental inquiry platform that enables children and adults alike the opportunity to observe the world around them, document that observation, share it, and encourage discussion around that tagged item of interest. The main objectives are to leverage the rampant use of and affinity for technology to encourage people to observe the natural world around them and to share and discuss that information with peers and colleagues. We present the Geotagger platform, share some initial feedback from various users, and we discuss how Geotagger has evolved based on that feedback.
