Mobile application: Kaunas city guide “Discover”

Assoc. prof. doc. Rita Brakauskaitė

Traditional ways of learning do not always suit Generation Z. Youngsters’ needs are closely related to technologies and easily accessible information. City guide application “Discover” combines active leisure, education, and gamification. The learning process gets entertaining – the user becomes a detective, this way enabling easier absorption of information. Route names in the application are hyperbolic, and objects vary from historical to contemporary. Their locations are indicative, and the discovery of an exact location is left to the user. Upon finding an object, the user can read about the object’s history or watch the animation in augmented reality.
