Abstract:
In order to attract visitors, National Geoparks propose different approaches, such as geotrails or guided tours. At the same time, there is a growth in the use of apps among the general population, for learning and information-gathering purposes, due to the ever-increasing advances in smartphone technology. So far, however, National Geoparks have lagged behind in tapping into the growing use of smart devices. There is little integration of apps into their programs and tours. This article focuses on the use of apps within National Geoparks where it does occur. We examine the discussion of apps in recent literature, and learning processes using apps during field excursions. Out of this, the following question arises: What characteristics should a National Geopark app have in order to maximize learning outcomes? To answer this question, we used a qualitative interview study, and present both the results and ideas for possible future investigations.

Keywords:  apps, National Geopark, mobile learning
