Field activities and collaborative learning are prominent educational approaches. Various devices can be used to implement these approaches. For example, mobile devices have been excellently employed to facilitate outdoor learning, as desktops and laptops have been for indoor collaborative learning. But the use of laptops and desktops for group activities has some limitations like the support for only a limited number of learners who can use a device at a time. Also interactive multi-touch tables with shareable interfaces and large displays have reached the market. Given that technology has provided the means to augmented both indoor and outdoor learning activities and communication infrastructure, this project focused on developing a general framework for learning that incorporates all these devices to provide an integrated learning environment which supports learning processes both in and out of classrooms.
