ST6. Wearable Technology Enhanced Learning


Wearable technologies – such as smart watches, smart glasses, smart objects, smart earbuds, or smart garments – are just starting to transform immersive user experience into formal education and learning at the workplace. These devices are body-worn, equipped with sensors and conveniently integrate into leisure and work-related activities including physical movements of their users.

Wearable Enhanced Learning (WELL) is beginning to emerge as a new discipline in technology enhanced learning in combination with other relevant trends like the transformation of classrooms, new mobility concepts, multi-modal learning analytics and cyber-physical systems. Wearable devices play an integral role in the digital transformation of industrial and logistics processes in the Industry 4.0 and thus demand new learning and training concepts like experience capturing, re-enactment and smart human-computer interaction.

This proposal of a special track is the offspring of the SIG WELL (http://ea-tel.eu/special-interest- groups/well/) in the context of the European Association for Technology Enhanced Learning (EATEL). It is a follow up proposal for the inaugural session we had at the iLRN 2015 in Prague and in iLRN 2017 in Coimbra.

In the meantime, the SIG was successful in organizing a number of similar events at major research conferences and business oriented fairs like the EC-TEL, the I-KNOW and the Online Educa Berlin OEB. Moreover, the SIG has involved in securing substantial research funds through the H2020 project WEKIT (www.wekit.eu). The SIG would like to use the opportunity to present itself as a platform for scientific and industrial knowledge exchange. EATEL and major EU research projects and networks in the field support it. Moreover, we’ll seek to attach an IEEE standard association community meeting of the working group on Augmented Reality Learning Experience Models (IEEE ARLEM).
