Abstract [en]

   Place-based learning can be facilitated via mobile digital devices. This is relevant both from the perspective of the educational objectives of schools and the aim of creating a greater range of differentiated learning environments. This study is part of a larger project that explores more focused study of the use of digital devices within the context of outdoor learning.

   The study was carried out using mainly an abductive approach, leading to results of four categories and a graphic model. Thus new insights have been gained into the ways that modern information and communication technology can facilitate the interface between student and place.

   The research results are discussed in relation to experiential learning, affordance, learning object, context and place. The study demonstrates that digital tools can bring new qualities to place-based learning. The interface between humans and natural/urban environments can be developed both cognitively and affectively. There is potential here to both strengthen and transform experiences in the space where virtual and authentic learning environments meet. The conclusion to the study examines the need for further development of both technology and teaching. A holistic perspective that takes into consideration both collaboration and the contexts of different places is necessary when using digital media.
