Abstract

Mobile technology affords opportunities to augment a physical place with virtual layers of digital media to support place-based science learning. Our team investigated how children learned about local geoscience during a summer camp using an interactive watershed sculpture that was augmented with digital representations on iPad tablets. Findings showed the interplay among embodied experiences, mobile technology affordances, and collaborative sense making during informal, place-based learning in an Arboretum summer camp.
