Abstract

MMobile phones (smartphones) are some of the objects teachers are most afraid of in the classroom. They have acquired a bad reputation in the educational environment, usually related to distractions and waste of time. However, these devices can be used in the science classroom with a very different goal: to improve the academic performance and increase the students’ motivation. We introduce the use of digital resources for conducting practical activities and the creation of a Natural Sciences virtual laboratory. Developing 3D models with the mobile application Trnio© means easily generating photorealistic models of rocks, geological structures and fossils. This type of tool contributes to constructivist learning and drives cooperative work, improving the students’ spatial vision. If it is possible to use mobile internet or a Wifi network the objects captured from photographs can be directly exported, and a virtual classroom set up with Sketchfab
