Description New technologies have been constantly entering into the geography teaching. It is necessary to use these technologies during the education process so that the current geography does not lose contact with students who use these technologies in their daily lives. This places high demands not only on technology but also on the knowledge and skills of teachers to use these technologies in teaching. As shown in some studies, the smart cell phone or tablet with appropriate applications is very powerful teaching tool and should be included in education at all school levels. The article aims to introduce the possibility of using a tablet or smart cell phone in the teaching of geography, particularly in the field work according to Danish concept BOYD (Bring Your Own Device). Specifically, the possibility of using the QR code in the implementation of field work will be presented. At the Department of Geography of the Faculty of Education a field work in a form of competition with QR codes in Brno was prepared. Aim of the competition was to get familiarize students of lower grades with environment and transport infrastructure of the city, to include movement into teaching and also to show the possibilities of modern technologies – smart cell phone – in education (GPS tracker, a QR code reader, compass, camera and other applications that almost every student in his/her cell phone).
