FIELD GUIDE project aims to improve scientific, conservation and environmental literacy levels among children and young people living in the Azores archipelago, a region of Portugal with one of the lowest school rates. Developed at the intersection of ‘on-the-spot learning’ and ‘mobile learning’, this project aims to promote educational experiences that can positively impact the region. Through the design of a mobile application (app.), The project aims to provide a new generation with an opportunity to explore, learn and monitor the natural environment surrounding it. An application will be designed to interact with biodiversity and environmental monitoring portals and existing databases. Also, use the power of geographic location to foster the understanding of the natural world by young people and children in the Azores, making them aware of the uniqueness and fragility of oceanic island ecosystems.
