Mobile Learning, Augmented Reality and Geocaching in Science Education

EduPARK Project

Objective

The project’s main challenge is to create original, attractive and effective strategies for interdisciplinary learning in Natural Sciences, Physics-Chemistry, Mathematics, History, among others, through the creation of a mobile interactive Augmented Reality (AR) application, using mobile devices, to support geocaching activities to be explored by teachers and students from basic to higher education in outdoor environments, but also with potential use in the tourism sector/ general public.

Expectation

The main expectation is that combining technology familiar to students with outdoor learning strategies, will allow learning to move beyond traditional classroom environments to outdoor spaces that students can physically explore and simultaneously make connections with curricular content and the peers they share them with.

Furthermore, it is expected that the project unveils best practices in education by valuing digital and social interactions, using innovative technology in outdoor environments and mixing real and virtual worlds. It may also provide new challenges, open horizons and opportunities for Science Education, not only in Portugal but also abroad, providing theoretical and practical frameworks that can be useful in other natural environments.

17th UA Open Week

Nov 21st and 23rd, 2016

The EduPARK project participated in the Open Week of Science and Technology 2016 with the activity “Discovering the Infante D. Pedro Park’s treasures”. The project team developed three sessions with city schools’ classes: one from the 3rd Cycle and two from the 1st Cycle of the Portuguese Basic Education System. Pupils explored Aveiro’s oldest park with the support of an interactive mobile application with Augmented Reality, created within the project. The activity aimed at collecting pupils’ feedback about the application and it was considered a success. It was held in a game format, with interdisciplinary and culture questions. The teams revealed motivation and united efforts to achieve the highest score possible, through the correct answering to the questions and, at the same time, discovering hidden treasures in the park. At the end, the project team handed out participation certificates and prizes that were sponsored by projectSeguraNet.

As examples of some in situ reactions, we highlight the following: “I think this application is really good because it teaches us how to learn in a different way”; “I think this activity was really enriching because it gave us values and also helped us to want to learn” (3rd Cycle pupils); “I liked it because we can learn more about the plants and everything in the Nature”; “It is mandatory to participate [in this activity] because it is really, really amusing” (1st Cycle pupils). The EduPARK team thanks the participation of the 74 pupils, and their teachers, as well as the monitors (researchers of the project and collaborating Masters’ Degree students), who volunteered to accompany the groups of pupils through the park. The smiles on their faces showed it was worth it. This is an experience that must be repeated!

UA Open Campus

May 10th, 2017

The EduPARK project participated in the UA Open Campus 2017 with the activity ‘Come and experiment with the Augmented Reality (AR) mobile application of the EduPARK Project’. On May 10th, two sessions with 23 students from secondary schools from Ermesinde, Felgueiras and Manteigas were held. The participants formed groups to test the latest version of the application of the EduPARK, already containing content for AR, as if they were in the park. This version of the application was developed by the EduPARK project team and two students of the Masters in Teaching of the 1st CEB and of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the 2nd CEB. Students collaborating are Márcia Carvalho and Ana Rita Rodrigues, who are supervised by Teresa Neto and Lúcia Pombo.

Participating students revealed enthusiasm and involvement in the game/application. At the end of the sessions, they provided feedback on the relevance and usability of the application, as the following comments illustrate: ‘It's an interesting application and I think it promotes learning in a different way among the younger students.’; ‘It's an interesting and very useful application for elementary school usage.’; ‘The application is very good for a different interaction with the park, but it has some problems regarding speed and response to the touch.’ The EduPARK team thanks the participation and collaboration of the students, and of their teachers, and will take into account their comments to introduce improvements in the application.

Infante D. Pedro’s Park

Short historical overview

In 1861, the President of the Municipality of Aveiro, Firmino Maia, decided to transform into a “Public Walk” the “Campo de Santo António” [Saint Antony’s Field]. This Field was part of the old “cerca” [wall] of the Convent of Santo António, that is, the lands that surrounded the convent and were cultivated by the monks. The remainder of the land had been sold to the first viscount of Santo António, Pedro António Rebocho, in 1842. With its tree-lined walk and well-composed and flourishing flowerbeds, the Public Walk was considered one of the first and best gardens in Portugal.

The “Public Garden” was renewed and expanded when Dr. Lourenço Peixinho was president of the Municipality. In 1919, he bought the Garden’s adjacent lands, the “Quinta de Santo António” [Saint Antony’s Farm] or “Quinta do ti Germano” [Uncle Germano's farm], that belonged to Jacinto Agapito Rebocho. The construction works dragged on for nearly a decade, with the Park being inaugurated with a big party, in 1927. It started by having a colonnade, like a pergola, connected to a double staircase and artificial grotto, which link the high and low zones of the Park. It is also from this time the beautiful Tea House, with its small library and ample terrace overlooking the lake.

Later, at one of the ends of Avenida das Tílias [Linden Trees Avenue] (between the lake and the Hospital), the Park had a circular cage and a rectangular one with birds and monkeys, a fact that may have motivated the name by which the Park is popularly known: "Parque da Macaca" [Monkey’s Park]. Currently, the Park connects in the northwest to the Baixa de Santo António [Saint Antony’s Downtown] by means of a pedestrian iron bridge, and in the southeast to the Parque dos Amores [Loves’ Park] or of Mário Duarte, forming a single green lung for the city.
