In this paper we intend to establish the creation and educational effectiveness of a digital learning module related to the implementation of Mobile Pedestrian Navigation and Augmented Reality (MPN-AR) features, developing educational processes linked to the territorial information and historical-culture heritage corresponding to the cities of Salamanca (Spain) and Santiago (Chile). The research focuses on two main areas: the first is the design and development of a MPN-AR platform, defining the architecture, functionality, interface and implementation; in a second stage we will develop empirical testing of display modes, understanding and effectiveness of the MPN-AR model created in a context of Mobile and Ubiquitous Learning about located territorial cultural heritage. Finally, the expected results are building flexible software in a mobile environment that allows the presentation of content on the historical heritage and the determination of its effectiveness in the context of Ubiquitous and Mobile Learning.
