Learning through Wearables in Everyday Scenarios

Learning through Wearables in Everyday Scenarios


This project investigates the potential of wearable technologies to support learning. We are attempting to understand people’s perception of the use of smart wearables. 


  • Understanding people’s acceptance of wearable technology
  • Investigating which wearable type is most suitable for different learning scenarios in everyday life
