EduPARK Project

O EduPARK é um projeto de investigação e desenvolvimento, com início em junho de 2016, cujo laboratório educativo é um espaço ajardinado, de grande valor estético, biológico, paisagístico e histórico – o Parque Infante D. Pedro.

Objective

O grande desafio do projeto é criar estratégias originais, atrativas e eficazes de aprendizagem interdisciplinar em Ciências Naturais, Físico-Químicas, Matemática, História, entre outras, através da criação de uma aplicação interativa em Realidade Aumentada (RA), com recurso a dispositivos móveis, suportando atividades baseadas em Geocaching, que será explorada por professores e alunos desde o ensino básico ao superior, em contextos de atividades ao ar livre, com potencial utilidade também no domínio do turismo/público em geral.

Expectation

A principal expetativa é que a combinação da tecnologia que é familiar aos alunos, juntamente com práticas de ensino em ambientes ao ar livre, permita potenciar as aprendizagens que deixam de ter lugar exclusivamente em sala de aula e se movem para espaços que os alunos exploram fisicamente, estabelecendo ligações com os conteúdos curriculares e com os colegas que com eles os partilham.

Espera-se que este projeto revele boas práticas educativas, onde se valorizam as interações digitais e sociais através da utilização de tecnologia inovadora, combinando os mundos real e virtual, o que poderá desencadear novos desafios, alargar horizontes e oportunidades para a Educação, em particular a Educação em Ciência, não só em Portugal, mas também no estrangeiro, fornecendo quadros de referência teóricos e práticos que possam ser úteis noutros ambientes naturais.

17th UA Open Week

21/11/16 & 23/11/16

O projeto EduPARK participou na Semana Aberta da Ciência e Tecnologia 2016 com a atividade “À descoberta dos tesouros do Parque Infante D. Pedro”. Foram realizadas três sessões com turmas de escolas da cidade: uma do 3.º ciclo e duas do 1.º ciclo de escolaridade. Os alunos exploraram o mais antigo parque de Aveiro com o apoio de uma aplicação interativa em Realidade Aumentada destinada a dispositivos móveis, que foi criada no âmbito do projeto. A atividade visou recolher feedback sobre a aplicação por parte dos alunos e foi considerada um sucesso. Decorreu em formato de jogo, com questões interdisciplinares e de cultura geral, em que as equipas mostraram motivação e uniram esforços para obter a maior pontuação possível, respondendo acertadamente às questões ao mesmo tempo que descobriam os tesouros escondidos no parque. No final, foram distribuídos certificados de participação e prémios patrocinados pelo projetoSeguraNet.

Como exemplos de algumas reações no local, destacam-se: “Eu achei esta aplicação muito boa porque ensina-nos a aprender de uma maneira diferente”; “Achei que esta atividade era muito enriquecedora porque transmite-nos valores e também ajuda-nos a querermos aprender” (alunos do 3.º ciclo); “Eu gosto porque podemos aprender mais sobre as plantas e tudo da natureza”; “É obrigatório participar [nesta atividade] porque é muito, muito engraçado.” (alunos do 1.º ciclo). A equipa do EduPARK agradece a participação dos 74 alunos e professoras, assim como dos monitores (investigadores do Projeto e mestrandos envolvidos), que se voluntariaram para acompanhar os grupos de alunos no parque. Os sorrisos nos seus rostos mostraram que valeu a pena. Experiência a repetir!

EduPARK integrates the activities of the 2018 Easter Club by the invitation of the Aveiro City Council

27/03/2018

The collaboration between EduPARK and the Youth Municipal House (Aveiro City Council), under the 2018 Easter Club, allowed, on this Tuesday (the 27th), 35 children and youngsters (from 6 to 14 years-old) to explore the Infante D. Pedro Park with the EduPARK App for a healthy occupation of free time during school holidays.

In group, the young explorers used mobile devices with the Augmented Reality application, developed by the EduPARK project, in a real treasure hunt in the city's oldest Park. To accomplish that, students used the games for the 1st and 2nd/3rd cycles of Basic Education, always accompanied by the Easter Club and the project's monitors. At the end, there were medals for the groups that reached the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. 

Youngsters and children expressed their opinion about the activity: "I loved learning with the application. I loved to hunt treasures"; "I really liked the part where we acquired knowledge and were searching [for caches]"; "It was very interesting because we were walking through the park and exploring."; "I liked the Augmented Reality contents"; "I reminded things I had learned at school, on mathematics and rocks."; "Using the mobile phone, learning is much better and cooler; no paper is wasted. " 

The EduPARK team thanks the participation of the young explorers and monitors of the Easter Club. Fundamental was also the collaboration of the Supervised Pedagogical Practical students, who carry out work within the scope of the project, and accompanied groups of participants. 

Students make the "Route through the Forest" in the Infante D. Pedro Park with the EduPARK app

16/04/2018

At the invitation of the Aveiro City Council and of the Eco-School Coordinator of the João Afonso de Aveiro School, this week, the EduPARK project organised three sessions in which the EduPARK app was explored in the Infante D. Pedro Park, involving 62 students from two local schools. This initiative is part of the "Route through the Forest" activity of the Associação Bandeira Azul da Europa (ABAE).

On April 16, 25 students from the 8th school-year from the Dr. Mário Sacramento Secondary School had the opportunity to look differently at the species that inhabit the Park and to learn in a fun way with the EduPARK game. On April 19, two classes (37 students) of the 5th school-year from the João Afonso de Aveiro Elementary School received clues and tips from the EduPARK Monkey to be able to meet the challenges, whilst exploring the Park's biodiversity. The students revealed interest and enthusiasm with this activity, which took place in an inter-group competition format, winning the groups that managed to get the higher score in the game, by answering correctly to the questions and challenges. 

The "Route for the Forest" aims to be an action that promotes synergies between the schools and their respective municipalities (city councils and parishes) with the main aim of acting for the protection of the ecosystems in the municipality, with a particular focus on the forest. It also aims to promote sustainable mobility and to put into practice the exercise of citizenship, alerting to the rights, duties and responsibilities of each stakeholder. In the Route, each school makes an activity of intervention and/or of environmental education in a green space or in the forest.

5th year students learn in the outdoors with the EduPARK project

17/04/2018

On April 16 and 17, 95 students from the 5th year of the João Afonso de Aveiro School started the "Plants" Content in the Infante D. Pedro Park with the EduPARK app, in four sessions promoted by the EduPARK project.

It was with great enthusiasm that the young students got involved in the game supported by the EduPARK app. In groups, they read the path guides  provided by the app, found out the various interest places of the Park where they could learn within the curriculum, explored multimedia and Augmented Reality contents related to these places, discussed ideas and possible solutions to the challenges launched and catch virtual treasures.

As explained by the teacher of the four classes, Dulce Maia, her interest in the EduPARK game was due to the fact that she was about to start the "Plants" Content and wanted to motivate her students to enhance their learning. She also mentioned "I think your EduPARK project is a fantastic resource for this purpose."

A month learning: EduPARK organizes activities in the Park for students of the 1st CEB of the Santiago School Centre

30/05/2018

In May, 162 students from the 2nd to the 4th school-year of the Santiago School Centre went to the Infante D. Pedro Park. Here, the students explored the EduPARK app to learn in a mobile way and with augmented reality. The EduPARK project organized seven sessions with this activity.

Teacher Elisabete Ribeiro, who attended the second edition of the training "Tablets in education: promotion of digital skills in the field of mobile learning", was the link between the School Centre and the Project, with the purpose of giving the students of this institution a day learning in a different way.

Students were enthusiastic about using mobile devices to learn the curriculum in an unusual environment - the Park of their city. In groups, students engaged in the EduPARK game, following the orientation instructions provided by the app, discovering the places of interest, exploring the multimedia and augmented reality contents related with those places, discussing possible solutions for the challenges and also finding virtual treasures.

The class teachers also expressed satisfaction with the app. For example, teacher José Agostinho, the teachers of a 2nd year class, said: "The students loved it and I think it is a very interesting way of learning because it allies the novelty, to the responsibility, to the motivation and to the means that students easily dominate nowadays. Students interact and are predisposed to learn something new."

Non-formal education with the EduPARK project

27/06/2018

The EduPARK project activities are still in high demand, even in the context of non-formal education. Just last week, about 55 children on vacation explored the Infante D. Pedro Park with the EduPARK app.

At a time when the use of mobile phones in schools is being debated, the demand for the EduPARK activities, which promote mobile learning with augmented reality in outdoor environments, continues to increase. Just last week, about 55 children from three non-formal learning promoting institutions - the "Cartola do Sábio" (Aradas) and "Soma e Segue" (Esgueira) Study Centres and also the Barcelos Conservatory of Music - have already used the EduPARK app. This app integrates several guides or educational games that aim to instigate learning of biology, mathematics, among other disciplines, in a different way in the Infante D. Pedro Park, also known as Monkey Park.

As a group, the young explorers walked the Park following the guidance of the Monkey of the EduPARK app to experience the augmented reality available in various points of interest of the Park. At the same time, they discover or even remember the physical state of the lake water, the primary colors of the kindergarten equipment and the reproductive structures of botanical species of the Park, among others. The EduPARK app game aroused interest and enthusiasm on the part of the children who, during their vacation, had fun learning in a context of non-formal learning. 

The adults accompanying the children also expressed great satisfaction with the activity. For example, one teacher mentioned that the activity is well achieved insofar as it "explores natural, cultural and architectural resources in an attractive way," considering that this type of exploration could be extended to other points of interest in the city of Aveiro.

22/11/2018

EduPARK, in the context of the Integrated Science of Nature II (ISN II), promotes the mobile learning activity in outdoor context "Biodiversity and preservation", with 20% weight in the evaluation. The students / future professionals in Education experience contextualized learning in the urban park, using Augmented Reality, integrating disciplines such as Physics, Chemistry, Geology and Biology, in line with the curricular plan of the ISN I and ISN II of the Basic Education High Degree.

After a theoretical background lesson in mobile learning and presentation of the EduPARK Project, the two ISN II classes developed the project activity in the Infante D. Pedro Park, on November 19th and 22nd. In this context, the students explored the educational guide directed to their academic level, where are integrated questions articulated with the programmatic contents of ISN I and ISN II, through the app EduPARK. In this way, authentic learning was fostered, based on the principles of geocaching and exploring the features in Augmented Reality on tiles and plaques that are located throughout the park.

This learning activity is integrated into the programmatic sequence of ISN II. It is followed by the production of an individual reflection on this teaching methodology in terms of its educational value, motivation and conservation and sustainability habits, as well as a lesson of group assignment presentation of questions that can be used in a mobile application for Teaching. Both products contribute to the evaluation of the work developed by the students within the scope of this curricular unit.

Parque Infante D. Pedro

Breve resenha histórica

Em 1861, o presidente da Câmara Municipal de Aveiro Firmino Maia decidiu converter em “Passeio Público” o “Campo de Santo António”. Este Campo ocupava parte da antiga “cerca” do convento de Santo António, ou seja, os terrenos que rodeavam o convento e que eram cultivados pelos frades. O restante da cerca tinha sido vendido, em 1842, ao primeiro visconde de Santo António, Pedro António Rebocho. Com a sua alameda (rua arborizada) e jardim de canteiros bem compostos e floridos, o Passeio Público foi considerado um dos primeiros e dos melhores jardins em Portugal.

O “Jardim Público” foi renovado e expandido quando o Dr. Lourenço Peixinho foi presidente da Câmara. Em 1919, comprou terrenos contíguos ao Jardim, a “Quinta de Santo Antonio” ou “Quinta do ti Germano” (o caseiro da Quinta), a Jacinto Agapito Rebocho. As obras arrastaram-se por quase uma década, tendo o Parque sido inaugurado em 1927, com uma grande festa. Passou a ter uma colunata, tipo pérgula, com ligação a uma dupla escadaria e gruta artificial, que ligam as zonas alta e baixa do Parque. É também desta época a bela Casa de Chá, com a sua pequena biblioteca e amplo terraço com vista sobre o lago.

Mais tarde, numa das extremidades da Avenida das Tílias (entre o lago e Hospital), o Parque teve uma gaiola circular e outra retangular com aves e macacos, facto que terá motivado o nome pelo qual é conhecido popularmente: “Parque da Macaca”. Atualmente, o Parque liga-se a noroeste à Baixa de Santo António, através de uma ponte pedonal em ferro, e a sudeste ao Parque dos Amores ou de Mário Duarte, formando um só pulmão verde da cidade.

Learning with an app? It's in the city park

Since the inauguration of the interactive mobile application EduPARK with Augmented Reality (last December), new movements have been felt in the Infante D. Pedro Park, in Aveiro.

Students, teachers and other visitors are walking through the Park with their smartphones that they point to tiles and plant identification plates to learn in a fun way with Augmented Reality.

In the company of the EduPARK Monkey you can now walk in a pleasant path in the city green park, through interactive games to find virtual caches, earn bananas and points whenever you complete the challenges and answer the questions correctly.

With the app it is now possible to discover, or even remember, what types of triangles are in the Tea House chimney, which rock makes up the bandstand base or which reproductive structures have certain botanical species of the Park... The EduPARK app game arouses interest and enthusiasm from the young explorers, in class time and also during school holidays, as they have fun learning and have a healthy occupation in their leisure time, even using the mobile phone.

The panel installed in front of the Park's artificial grotto, as well as the flyers scattered around the city, show the public how to install the app on Android mobile devices for free, through the Google Play Store. As the information is also available in English, it is expected that this app will also arouse interest from foreign tourists visiting the city during this summer period.

The app was created under the EduPARK*, a research project developed by a team from the University of Aveiro, involving the Departments of Education, Biology and Informatics, counting with the collaboration of the City Council of Aveiro.

EduPARK has promoted several activities that involved more than 200 teachers of all levels of education, in accredited training actions, and more than 800 students, as well as activities for the population of Aveiro, and received reactions of great satisfaction and motivation for learning, whether formal or non-formal. Come and visit us!

* The EduPARK Project is financed by FEDER Funds - COMPETE 2020 and by National Funds through FCT

The mascot is a monkey, thus recovering the memory of the Aveiro Citizens that lasts many years after the park has lost its most popular inhabitant. 

After the free download, the application based on augmented reality technology allows, without wifi, to "discover the park and observe what most people do not even notice," explained Lúcia Pombo, coordinator, after the inauguration of the system, this Wednesday. 

Through 32 plaques distributed throughout the park, visitors get to know not only the biodiversity distributed there, especially trees, but also information about the city, particularly concerning heritage and culture.
