AbstractWe have developed EagleEye-a GPS-supported integrated educational system for supporting teachers and students respectively to facilitate and pursue outdoor exploratory learning in Geography fieldtrip activities. We conducted a quantitative study (complemented with qualitative methods) with 98 Geography teachers to evaluate whether our work could provide students with more desirable outdoor exploratory learning experience in comparison with conventional outdoor fieldtrips. Results showed the teachers perceived positively that the EagleEye approach can offer students better student-centred learning experience, enhance their learning motivation, and give them more effective exploratory scaffolds; however, they had reservation about if EagleEye can promote better collaboration among students. The findings provided us with new insights into further studying the implementation of EagleEye in real teaching practice.
