Wearable technologies are relatively new to the education sector, and the industry is primed for a breakthrough in the coming years.
When Google Glass first came on the scene in 2013, experts predicted a massive boom in the way that we interacted with technologies that were more or less a part of us; we attached them to our clothing or bodies and aimed to achieve a deeper integration of information and biometric feedback. Google Glass never did take off the way it was supposed to, but since there have been some incredible wearable technologies that have revolutionized the way we go about our lives. The revolution in education is has been admittedly slower, but there is real potential in the segment for educational venture analysts.
The education sector has always been slow to adapt or even evolve in a variety of ways; it’s a colossal system with a penchant for doing what’s been done in the past. With that said, as different technologies increasingly find their way into our lives, it is all but certain that wearables will all but certainly enter education. Due to the nature of this relatively new technology, it’s a market that shows tremendous opportunity for years to come.
