Spyquest offer

Author David Goutcher is passionate about encouraging kids to read using a mixture of books and technology. His Spy Quest books have interactive components included in them that can be accessed via an app to bring the stories into the real world. You can see a video showing how the AR works here . The latest Spy Quest book Cursed Diamond includes augmented reality and allows readers to read the book and watch a movie too. 

Many schools have had great success in using the books with reluctant readers and report that their students have loved the marriage of physical and digital media. As part of a special offer to School Library Association members David has agreed that for  any bookings for school visits 

Spyquest 2

before the end of February quoting SLA offer he will create a Spy Quest game specific to your school free of charge (the games work in a similar way to the hugely popular Pokemon Go app). The day will be extremely interactive with students taking part in challenges and working together to solve mysteries. Reviews of David's school visits are overwhelmingly glowing, as you can see from this Storify and the visits can be tied in with many subjects making them truly cross curricular. If you are interested in booking a visit please contact David via email david.goutcher[at]polybiusgames.com.
