Detailed Description

BewilderED aims to exploit by the power of mystery and curiosity for enhancing engagement with a learning process.  Following the main concept used by ‘The Mysterious Package  Company’, the idea that things are delivered through the mail and randomly turn up somewhere from unknown sources, was something that has been experimented and tested.  Using the tested approach, materials are delivered to the students classroom, seemingly from different outside sources (e.g. a fake company), over a 4 week period.
