Mobile Learning’s Wearable Future

When we think about mobile learning, we often limit our design strategies to experiences delivered via smartphones and tablets. However the future of mobile is wearable technology, including glasses, watches, and more. What types of learning experiences could we create for wearable devices?

On July 17, I’ll be presenting a webinar for the eLearning Guild about wearable technology. The devices that I’ll highlight in the session aren’t quite ready for prime time and, in most cases, we’ve only seen a first iteration of each form factor. However, in five to seven years, wearable tech will be common and mobile-learning solutions will be delivered on more than just phones and tablets. By imagining the wearable devices of the future, we can stay ahead of the curve as instructional designers and developers.
