Wearable Technology in a Swedish Dentistry Study Programme: Potential and Challenges of Google Glass
2014 (English)In: ECTEL2014 workshop "Creative Mobile Learning and Teaching" #cmlt14: EC-TEL 2014 workshop on innovative uses of mobile and wearable technologies to support creativity in learning and teaching. / [ed] Ilona Buchem, Isa Jahnke, John Cook, Dimitris Apostolou, Neil Maiden, 2014Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
In this workshop, we report and demonstrate the use of new emergent technology in higher education. We present the example of Google Glass in a dentistry study programme at a Swedish University. The technology has been adopted for supporting the communication among teachers and students and to bridge the different places and spaces in which they study and work. With the explorative study, we want to illustrate the potential of technology and how it can be adopted for higher education. This implies a re-design of teaching and learning. Moreover, the empirical study shows that we need to radical think through our established concepts of ICT-enhanced, technology-enhanced learning ways from course-based learning into creative learning expeditions.
