Emergent Technologies in Higher Education: Google Glass and Telepresence Robots
2014 (English)In: Supporting Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age, 2014Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
In this paper, we demonstrate the use of new emergent technology in higher education. We present two examples, first, Google Glass in dental education, secondly, telepresence robots for communication among teachers and students across spaces. With both of the cases, we want to illustrate how technology can be adopted for education when a re-design of teaching and learning takes place. Moreover, the two empirical cases show that we need to radical think through our established concepts of ICT-enhanced, technology-enhanced learning ways from course-based learning into learning expeditions.
