Introduction to Walkwyse

EduTechWyse Ltd is a not for profit company, set up by Peter Horne, which is responsible for the development and support of the Walkwyse webapp and its aim of raising money for charity.

The Walkwyse web app is a great way to enjoy a self guided walk using your mobile phone, with GPS guidance and multimedia stories making an interesting walk even more enjoyable. Walking is a natural way to get the exercise we all need as well as being extremely important for mental health.

In 2019 his wife, Lin, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and the one thing she enjoys the most is walking, as does Peter. So creating a website for walkers, which anyone with a smart phone can access, seemed an obvious thing to do as a means of raising money for Alzheimer's Research.

As a technologist he has always been interested in seeing how technology can be applied to every day life. Having also trained as a guide at the National Arboretum at Westonbirt in 2018, he was well versed in leading walkers around a trail and providing them with fascinating facts about nature and history. During Covid lockdowns (when guiding was not possible at Westonbirt) he set about the challenge of converting this knowledge into brief audio/visual stories which could be GPS triggered at relevant locations around a walk with a webapp. Thus Walkwyse was born!

The charities which EduTechWyse supports are Alzheimer’s research, Alzheimer's Society, Parkinson’s, Devon Air Ambulance, Field Studies Council (FSC), Devon Wildlife Trust and Children In Need. Lin & Peter are keen to support both education in the outdoors for the younger generation as well as help fund research to find cures for some of the devastating diseases of age.

Enjoy the walks and give generously to the supported charity.
