Wearable Tech/Immersive Learning (Module 3-Post 3)

Immersing oneself in an educational experience is common theme in Indigenous education. As discussed in post 1, technology has the ability to make this a reality when the necessary “experiences” are not readily available to the educator. Emerging wearable technology is seen as the technological bridge that could bridge human experience to simulated location. My research in making technology more emotionally sound, has resulted identifying technology that not only reacts to our emotions, but keeps us more in touch with our emotions. This webpage explores various wearable technology that simulates human touch (haptics), and augmented reality to create authentic educational experiences. These experiences align with the Indigenous vision of education, with the assistance of technology for the 21st century learner.
