Abstract: It is impossible to discuss the knowledge society without considering the relationship between education and pervasive computing. As we all know computers and other mobile devices, including smart phones, are a common part of every day life and are also used in public institutions. Computation is often embedded in the environment and everyday objects and its potential use may remain hidden. With this pervasive presence of computers around us, we have to look out for new ways of processing information and creating and sharing knowledge. This study investigates the possibility of activating informal learning in college students, pupils and tourists involving them in a project to create knowledge and connect it with the physical world through the creative use of advanced technologies.
