To provide a platform for the conduct of onsite Place-based Learning during Field Trips. The learning approach allows the setup of a temporary classroom to support the learning of students on-site. In this setting, a group of students participated in an environmental science field study to experience knowledge integration and a decision-making process. The project involves a group of students engaged in a 2-phase science and planning project. In phase 1, students will work on six research topics to understand the characteristics of an organic farm and in phase 2, they will plan for the development of an ecological village. Students collected and analysed data from the field and shared their findings. Should there be any problems with the data collected, they will be able to refine their methods of data collection immediately. Throughout the project, students will experience the development of integrated knowledge, the challenges of knowledge sharing and communication during their collaboration. This will allow students to learn through a collaborative problem-solving process, including the interdependence of knowledge and the development of mutual relationships such as respect and care for others’ knowledge and learning. Through this project, we attempt to encapsulate all the value-propositions of SST. They key Google Apps used are Google Maps and Google Sketchup.
