Wearable technology is a pretty cool concept to me, though I’d still probably classify most of it as less “now”, more “future“. While there is a wide array of products currently on the market, the most well known wearable gadgets (which I try to distinguish in my mind from the more generalized “wearable technology”, which most of us wear in our clothing and shoes on the regular) are probably activity trackers (like Fitbit or the Nike Fuel Band) and Google Glass – and clearly the latter is much less widespread in use.
So how can you use wearable technologies in the classroom? Unless you’re a PE teacher, having activity trackers in class probably isn’t at the top of your wish list. The handy infographic below takes a look at wearable technology in the classroom, and what the future might bring to our current classroom reality.
