Fieldwork education innovation

Online and mobile learning for excursions

Students during excursion about the landscape and geology

In our project ‘Let’s go outside’ we will use online / digital maps and other educational resources on tablets in the field. The aim is to improve excursions and make field-activities possible without the need of a teacher present. The use of e-learning materials on mobile devices (Mobile Learning) is valuable for education on location, and especially suitable for accessing maps and collecting data.

In this project we develop an educational design to use mobile technology for teaching outside the campus, and we create several excursions. All materials are designed such that they are sharable and re-usable by other institutes.
