    After teaching for over ten years, I have taken a break to return to study, and complete a Masters in Heritage Management.

    As part of my research, I am looking to explore how Smart / mobile phones may be used to engage students (and possibly wider audiences) with history, heritage and museums. My research is still in the very early stages, so any comments etc you may have would be appreciated.

    My questions to you:

    *Have you used mobile phones functions and apps either in or out of the classroom to engage students with history and heritage? If so, what and how?

    *Have you ever used smart phone apps or functions on a field trip to a historical site or museum with students?

    Thank you in advance,

    Google Expeditions for engaging in the classroom. And onsite I recall British museum doing something around AR and Fort Nelson on the South coast giving the students iPods to record their explorations.

    Could you use those QR code things to transmit information/animations/reconstructions to a phone?
