I’m having a lot of fun in the exhibition hall at the CIPD’s HRD 2012. Reason? I’m playing a scvngr hunt around the exhibition hall on my iphone. I’m playing because I want to win the ipad 3 prize ;-) I also wanted to try out the hunt because it is an app and I wanted to see how it worked.

The app is easy to use – load up, check in and start doing the ‘challenges’. These include taking images, finding clues from around the hall, using QR codes (scanner in-built).

You get points for completing each challenge and there is a leaderboard to see where you are.

I thought this was a neat app and very effective for the context in which it is being used.

Here is Jon Costello from Careergro talking about why they decided to use this app.
