Teaching Sustainability via Smartphone-Enhanced Experiential Learning in a Botanical Garden
Keywords:Sustainability, Mobile learning, Smartphones, Outdoor learning, experiential learning, extramural learning
This paper presents findings from an evaluation study of a project aimed at using smartphones for experiential learning in the botanical garden by pre-service teachers. The evaluation of the project focused on four main aspects: the teaching students' and the instructor's general satisfaction with the project, the students' perception of the contribution of the project to their learning, the students' perception of the contribution of the smartphone to the learning process, and the quality of their learning outcomes, e.g., the Smartphone-enhanced experiential learning activities that they designed. This initial attempt to integrate experiential learning and smartphones elicited many important conclusions about how the smartphone may be integrated into experiential learning
