"By turning, say, a walk home through the park into a nature walk, that every day experiences will become opportunities for learning."

I think the idea behind this is just great. Send some kids off to learn and explore the world around them in new ways.
I'd support this guy, he has the right idea about it.

Make science and the want to explore and learn something that people want to do for the sake of learning something new.

Of course, a walk home from the park is an opportunity for learning, with or without this device. It's down to the parent/teacher/device to 'make it so'.
