Hello team 522!
Welcome to the last Opportunity Forecast.
The topic of our OER was Wearable Technology and we have had an immensely interesting time delving into this emerging market over the weeks leading up to our creation and launch of this resource.
For this OER we have the following learning outcomes:
- Describe the origins of wearable technologies, and qualify its designs, themes, and types.
- Understand the ethical concerns and educational implications of incorporating wearables into the education sector using the framework for assessing wearable value and viability.
- Recognize some of the main startups making waves in the sector, and evaluate them from an EVA lens.
- Above all, participate in and foster meaningful discussion about the aspects of design, ethical considerations, applications of wearables, but perhaps most importantly, how wearables can contribute and/ or change the world we live in now.
Within our OER there are several activities for you to complete to provide evidence of your participation including surveys and some discussion questions.
We hope you will enjoy our OER and find it interesting and informative. Who knows “wear” the future will lead but we hope to give you a glimpse of the immense opportunities, possibilities and potential of this emerging market!
We welcome feedback and any suggestions for improvement of our resource before we finalize it.
Take care everyone and we wish you all the best.
Carlo, Emily, Miguel and Scott
