Students created local history, culture and ecology audio guides on DropzApp.
Secondary school children were invited to learn about the history, culture and ecology of their locality and then create audio guides around their areas on the free DropzApp platform. Download DropzApp to follow our latest Droppers.
Primary students joined in too. They created history and ecology Dropz for Cruinniú na nÓg.
Searching for #History, #Culture & #Ecology Droppers®
Supported by Cruinniú Na nÓg, DropzApp is holding an exciting and educational competition for ALL Kildare Primary and Secondary schools.

This competition is an opportunity for your students to get active for Cruinniú na nÓg by researching and documenting, through audio guides on DropzApp, the HISTORY, CULTURE and ECOLOGY of locations in your area.
Then encourage your students to research and create a series of Dropz® for your page.
You can choose the themes, topics and locations within the broad categories of #HISTORY #CULTURE & #ECOLOGY.
Let your students’ imaginations run wild!
All Dropz® must be posted before the 6th June and will be judged for Cruinniú na nÓg on the 12th June. So get started now 🙂
The best school page will receive a €500 prize (€500 for best primary school and €500 for best secondary school)
We also have 20 x €25 book tokens for the best student Droppers®. Please ask your students to sign off their Dropz with their name e.g. This is “Joe Bloggs” for “Springfield School”.
Our judges will assess the winners based on the following three criteria;
1. Number of Dropz created by each school 2. Quality of Dropz content and recording covering #History #Culture #Ecology 3. Your reach – The number of users listening to your school’s Dropz – so get sharing 🙂
To encourage listeners each Drop can be shared through social media or via email links to encourage other students, parents, locals and town visitors to listen to your Dropz® as the walk, cycle or drive by.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES You can go to local historical sites and record Dropz describing their architecture and/or #HISTORY or/and an interesting story #CULTURE. In a park or by a river, canal or lake at specific spots describe the #Ecology of the spot; describe the animals or birds seen here or name the plants and trees.
Time to get creative and start telling your town’s story.
