Pollution and health have emerged in recent years as worldwide concerns. A great deal of information is communicated in order to raise human awareness of this issue. Public signage is one way to obtain this information. The aim of this paper is twofold. Firstly, this article outlines the use of Google Street and Google Maps to locate street signs linked to pollution and health issues. The second is to develop a conceptual approach into creative learning by employing digital technology in discovering and introducing students to information regarding pollution and health signs in the outdoor landscape using a novel technique and approach called Digital Linguistic Landscape Learning. It was revealed that the self-access center is the focal point for the development and use of digital technology, which provides students with the autonomy to investigate or discover solutions to the contestation of socio-cultural phenomena connected to the two key concerns in the public spheres.
