In June 2019, the department of Geography and Resource Management (GRM) has organized a 12-day field study in Thailand. 30 CUHK students from GRM and the Urban Studies Program joined and explored the geographical interests together in Bangkok and Chiang Mai. On one day, students explored different ethnic groups situated in various parts of Bangkok. Prior to the study trip, Prof. Areerut Patnukao from the Department of Geography in Chulalongkorn University and myself identified some interesting locations to assist the exploration of communities by self-exploration. With the aid of the uReplyGo platform, various activities were set and linked to these checkpoints. Students were divided into five groups and explored five different communities including Talad Noi, Kudi Chin, Yaowarat, Phahurat and Banglamphu. Each group shared their observation and findings afterwards. In the end of the field study, a survey was conducted to understand the effectiveness of using uReplyGo as a teaching and learning tool in field studies course from student perspective. Regarding the overall learning experience with uReplyGo, about 60% of respondents believed it was an excellent/ good experience. About 87% of respondents recommended the activity to be continued in the upcoming field studies. In the open-end questions, some students found the tool was easy to use but improvements can be made for the interface. And the learning process was interesting as they can learn more about the surrounding places and can understand more about the objectives of the fieldwork. However, technical problems such as inaccurate GPS location and unstable network connection were mentioned.
