    Abstract

    Portable learning assistance tools that display learning information (learning assistance tool) by holding a non-contact IC card over a PDA with an attached non-contact IC card reader/writer was developed. In this practical study, a field observation activity was conducted using the portable learning assistance tools in the "earth structure" unit of elementary school. Results indicated that the students' level of comprehension was significantly increased after the field activity, and a survey of student attitudes revealed that motivation for learning field observation increased.
