AbstractEagleEye is an integrated GPS-supported educational system for supporting students and teachers respectively in pursuing and facilitating exploratory learning in outdoor fieldtrip activities. This system has four components, including the (1) Location-based Exploratory Resource Authoring Tool, (2) GPS-supported Exploratory Platform, (3) Repository Server, and (4) Teacher Console. A preliminary study, which involved 40 participants (38 students and 2 teachers from a school) adopting EagleEye in an outdoor fieldtrip activity, was carried out to investigate their perceptions of this system. It was found that EagleEye brought desirable fieldtrip experience to the students. The teachers also perceived positively the educational potential of EagleEye for outdoor fieldtrip activities from both technical and pedagogical perspectives.
