Geolocation Technology in Place-based Learning

Place-based learning gets students out of the classroom to explore and interact with the physical environment. An instructional innovation team worked with geology professors to solve a unique instructional challenge: using geo-location and interactive technology to bring geological concepts and applications to life for students while in the field. We will present specific challenges, findings, and solutions for the use of geo-location applications in place-based learning.
