This year, KnowledgeWorks has submitted one session.
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? This session will 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.
In this session, Jason Swanson, director of strategic foresight for KnowledgeWorks, will help participants to:
- Deepen their understanding of the technology trends influencing possible futures of education and trajectories of change
- See futuristic vignettes that illustrate tangible ways in which wearables, AR and VR could change the classroom setting
- Consider how these technologies could support the creation of responsive learning environments.
