Abstract [en]

Mobile geolocation applications have been growing in popularity in the last decade. The ability to run a service on a mobile device that provides facts or recreational information to users opens up new opportunities to create engaging learning contexts. However, the potential of such services has not been fully exploited within educational settings, as compiling functional, student-friendly, context-aware learning journeys required advanced programming skills. The authors discuss this challenge and present tools that facilitate the construction of gamified learning paths, which integrate context-aware activities and minigames as motivational drivers for learning. The paper reports on the user testing feedback obtained in workshop settings.
