As mobile devices develop fast, the concepts of ubiquitous learning mature gradually. Learners can learn with different mobile devices in order to learn in any time at any place. The main purpose of this research is to design campus plants learning activities which conform to “STS Project-Based Learning and U-learning environment” learning strategy and elaborate the characteristics of mobile learning devices in outdoor and propose the applications of mobile learning devices, curriculum design and further research for concrete effective suggestion. We find there are significantly differences in attitudes towards science teacher, attitudes towards science curriculums, motives in science curriculum and learning strategy in science. Besides, there are significantly differences in some of students’ information abilities after they have gone through “STS Project-Based Learning and U-learning environment ” learning activities with Tablet PCs and PDAs.
