dc.description.abstractThe traditional teaching methods, although very important,fail to explore the potential of interactive group collaborationand multisensory communication. Research has consistentlyshown that interactive and collaborative group learning,compared to traditional methods, produce greater learningand individual achievement. Learning can be fun, but forthat, students need to be on scene and not just spectators.This paper presents a framework that handles the creationof georeferenced multisensory information, placing the contentcreation control in the hands of junior explorers thechildren. Mobile sensors spread across the exploring area,provide georeferenced environment information such as airtemperature and humidity.Using multimedia (video, image, sound and text) teacherscan bring the outside world into their classroom and shareit with other classrooms across the globe. Having schoolsbudgets in mind, when using this framework only contentexploration using Google Earth requires Internet connection,that is, content creation can be made anywherewithout any costs.
