  3. 3. Motivation • USO project fieldwork: preparation and data-processing • Quantitative analysis with GIS • Relate own data to existing data • But not in the field • This project • Digital learning content and map in the field • Stimuleringsregeling OCW • Create content for 3 cases and evaluate • Focus on improving education • Report added value, lessons learned, etc. 3
  4. 4. Goal of this lunch lecture • Possibilities and added value of mobile learning content • Show examples of previous uses and plans • Inspire & discuss 4

  6. 6. Learning goals and excursion forms Kent et al. (1997) / Journal of Geography in Higher Education. 6
  7. 7. Opportunities of digital learning content • Easier to include more participation and autonomy • Match cognitive skills to excursion type • Data collection • Analysis with GIS • Archive • Activate students more • Personal experience • Differentiate different levels • Students are used to use mobile devices • Logistics / flexible planning 7
  8. 8. Example data-collection - Bike wrecks ESRI collector – Students collect part of group dataset 8
  9. 9. Example: excursion Kromme Rijn ESRI collector as guide and for excercises Without tutor – Time-series of photos 9
  10. 10. Our project Using tablets for field activities • Mobile e-lectures • Location-based content • Digital maps • Collecting data / drawing on maps Three cases • Create content • Evaluate and report 10
  11. 11. Excursion Landscape & Geology • Geologie van Nederland • Part of the classic excursion of Berendsen et al. • Connect landscape elements to subsurface Apps: - IZI-travel - Excursion guide with route, images, videos and text - Guidance with audio - ESRI Collector - Photos, lines, points, … - Available online after excursion - Avenza maps - View (georeferenced) maps 11

  13. 13. Germany / Poland – June 2017 • Gentrification in Berlin • Spatial development plan Wroclaw Goals • Active learning • Combining existing data sets with observational research • Digital maps, video & audio fragments, photo’s • e-lecture tour through Berlin (instead of walking with teacher) 13
  14. 14. Modules to learn to work with equipment • Register default field (or lab) procedures • E.g. Sieving, DGPS, sampling • Self containing packages with video, photos, digital manuals, etc • Practice first, review instructions during fieldwork. • Plus content on data-processing, data quality, etc. 14 Example: Wageningen UR
  15. 15. Discussion • Questions? • Ideas? • Can we help? • Critical notes? 15 w.a.marra@uu.nl
