Watch the preview video for our presentation Wear to Learn on Wearables in Education at SXSWedu on Thursday morning, 10:30-11:30am in Salon F at the Hilton Austin Hotel. We are on the cusp of a profound transformation in our mobile devices as they move from objects in our pockets to things we wear. And just as Smartphones are changing the way students access information and communicate with each other, we think Wearable Tech will have a tremendous impact on the learning environment.
We hope to see you there!
SXSWedu Session Description
What happens when wearable tech enters the classroom? Our session explores how persistent and multiple streams of information, images and video will augment reality and transform learning. Eyeglasses will become screens, jewelry will gather and transmit data, and information will be projected/imprinted on our physical bodies. These interfaces will empower students as architects of their own learning while simultaneously challenging social relations and disrupting existing practices in education.
