The SXSWedu® annual conference and festival fosters innovation in learning by hosting a community of optimistic, forward-thinking, purpose-driven stakeholders with a shared goal of impacting the future of teaching and learning. The 2019 Austin-based conference will occur from March 4-7, 2019.
Joining the lineup, Jason Swanson will be leading a session called “The Potential Impact of Wearables, AR & VR” on March 6 from 2 to 2:20 pm at the Hilton Austin Downtown.
Imagine a student staring blankly at a page of homework, unsure of where or how to start. What if a piece of wearable technology could sense their stress and give them access to the support they need with just one click of a button? During his session, Swanson will help participants explore how wearables, augmented reality and virtual reality have the potential to impact learning in significant ways by presenting a series of futuristic vignettes, along with insights to help assess their potential value.
