  1. 1. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu GTI – UPF November 2011 Valladolid
  2. 2. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu • QuesTInSitu is a web-based system designed and built to support assessment in situ activities based on tests. • Two types of assessment in situ activities:  Assessment in virtual situ: geolocated questions that have to be answered interacting with a Web map  Assessment in real situ: geolocated questions which have to be answered with a mobile (with GPS and Internet) following a route
  3. 3. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu QuesTInSitu: functionalities • Creation of QTI v2.1 questions: Multiple Choice, Multiple Response and True / False • Geolocated questions in Google Maps Demo • Automatic correction • Creation of routes • Monitorization of routes
  4. 4. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu QuesTInSitu Mobile: functionalities • QuesTInSitu Mobile Web Interface • Access to geolocated questions • History of answered questions • Add images and comments • Gallery
  5. 5. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Experiments
  6. 6. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Experiment 1: Discovering Barcelona!
  7. 7. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu A Real Educational Context • Discovering Barcelona! An experiencie performed with High school students and their teachers designed with QuesTInSitu and 4SPPices • The activity was an adaptation of an activity carried out in previous years where teachers explored with their students a district of Barcelona (without using any technological solution). • A mandatory course of Geography and History • Students learn about town-planning concepts of the Barcelona city  The aim was to enhance the activity with enriched assessment in situ
  8. 8. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Limitations to deal 1. Visiting more than one district 2. Monitoring the work done by the students during the route 3. Introducing a collaborative component into an activity that is been traditionally individual 4. Introducing the use of technologies (traditionally teachers used dossiers to guide and support the students) 5. The students lost the opportunity of reflecting about the answers to the questions in situ
  9. 9. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Discovering Barcelona! Activity • 34 students and 2 teachers • 6 groups of students visited 6 districts of Barcelona answered questions in situ • 6 researchers acomppanied the students taking observations • 2 researchers stayed with the teachers monitoring the activity
  10. 10. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Experiment 2: Discovering St. Llorenç del Munt
  11. 11. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu New functionalities: QuesTInSitu Mobile • Location based System • Map with users’ position and questions’ positions • In Discovering Barcelona! MScape was used as a LBS
  12. 12. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Learning Botany at St.Llorenç del Munt - Students of 1rst course of Biomedicine studies at UPF • A botany experience at Sant Llorenç del Munt with QuesTInSitu – Participatory design: teacher + researcher designing a Blended Learning scenario considering previous experiences. – Learning exploring, touching and observing the environment!
  13. 13. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu QuesTInSitu: designing the activity • Route: QuesTInSitu + QR-codes• 1st stretch: QuesTInSitu + 3G + GPS• 2nd stretch (no 3G signal): QR-codes + Hotpotatoes Test• In both cases questions are automatically corrected With QTISM questions appears automatically and the history of answers/scores is saved
  14. 14. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu QuesTInSitu: Learning Botany at St.Llorenç del Munt• Optional activity: during three weekends in May• 7 students participated
  15. 15. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Lessons learned
  16. 16. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Lessons Learned • Open spaces with GPS/Internet signal: 1. Teachers do not need to interact physically with the environment 2. Flow of questions can be easily modified 3. The system can detect where the users are and adapt the activity considering their positions 4. Automatic apparition of questions confirms that students are correctly located. It can be used to monitor, in real time the progress (locations, punctuations achieved) of the students in the activity 5. Automatic apparition of questions (controlled by the GPS signal) gives dynamism to the process of reading/answering questions. This automation get students more “excited” and motivates them to perform the activity
  17. 17. GTI Group de tecnologies interactives http://gti.upf.edu Lessons Learned • Closed spaces (or open spaces without 3G signal) 1. Teachers will have to put manually the tags in the corresponding locations or prepare a map of the zone with the corresponding codes 2. When the Internet connection is bad or null, all the material (tests, images, audios) has to be saved in the mobile device. This fact increases the tasks that have to be done by the teacher before the execution of the assessment activity 3. Teachers cannot make changes during the activity or monitor it in real time 4. The responsibility of reading correctly the questions fall on the students 5. It is not possible to know the real position of students, then it is very difficult to send feedback or hints to guide them during the route.
