    Modern pedagogical approaches enable the use of various forms of learning and teaching. Teachers want to link learning to real life with problems and assignments formed in a way that students get the necessary knowledge and skills for life. In trying to do that, teachers often face difficulties finding and using suitable tools. Our goal is to connect two different groups of students and increase knowledge transfer between them. One part of the teaching process takes place in the classroom and the other outside, in nature. The intention of the classroom activities is interation of the students from different groups. Activities take place in the form of different social games, adapted to the age and needs of the children. When the social interaction between students strengthens the teacher introduces field learning with the help of tablet computers. They serve as an effective tool, enabling students to follow an interactive map of the route and look for specific signs in the nature. When they reach marked points they answer pre-prepared questions. Because the questions are answered via Internet the teacher can follow their responses in real time and provide immediate feedback. Learning is therefore more effective and students are motivated for further research due to constant incentive and tips. Besides covering the required learning material from different parts of the curriculum, we also strengthen social interaction between the two groups.
