Mobile applications are making it possible for schools to make field trips more interactive and -- in some cases -- take students on field trips through augmented reality programs. The technology uses mobile phones and tablets with Internet, GPS and cameras, and can prompt students with questions and interactive features about locations and scenery. In one example, sixth-grade students used their personal devices to collect data and take quizzes while visiting a nearby pond.
