Course: PokemonGoGeography As I was growing up in the 1990’s Pokémon first came on the scene as a trading card game and television series. Pokémon thrived as a children's franchise due to its multimedia experience, later the franchise even went to the big screen 1. I loved Pokémon and so did all my friends inside and outside of the playground. The fantasy land of Pallet Town replaced wild life with Pokémon, in a game any 19th century entomologist would be proud of. The game allowed children to dream of wondering the streets collecting Pokémon just as they had done collecting bugs and insects. Pokémon Go is designed to allow children to catch Pokémon in the real world using augmented reality. I wanted to use this excitement and engagement to teach a difficult and previously underperforming topic. I made the resource dyslexic friendly, as I had many pupils in my class who were dyslexic. During the ‘local landmarks’ lesson the pupils were split into cooperative learning groups of four.
