Abstract

Learning passport is a self-maintained record of learning achievements at different levels, which may serve as a goal-setter, guide, and motivation sustainer for learning. This paper describes a framework for mobile learning supported by learning passport. This framework emphasizes using the items in the learning passport to motivate and guide students to move and explore the answers at outdoors with mobile devices. The study also designed a system, and conducted an experiment, where 32 elementary school students used PDAs (personal digital assistants) to explore the woody plants in the school garden, according to the directions of the items in the learning passport shown on PDAs. The results of a questionnaire reveal that students are interested in the system and think it can enhance their learning achievement.
