We’re running a workshop for makers of wearable solutions on Friday, September 16th, 2016, at the 11th European Conference for Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) in Lyon, France. It is dedicated to demonstrating prototypes and sharing experiences with wearable enhanced learning both with respect to hardware as well as software.

Wearable technologies – such as smart watches, smart fitness trackers, smart glasses, smart glasses, smart objects, smart earbuds, or smart garments – are beginning to change personal communications, offering new opportunities for learning and interacting. They are likely to dramatically change human computer interaction in the future beyond what we imagine today. Wearable Enhanced Learning (WELL) turns out to be a revolutionary step in the transition from the desktop age through the mobile age to the age of pervasive computing.

Participants of this session are encouraged to show projects, to demo or discuss how the prototypes were developed, and inspire other participants to add ideas for further development and applications in real-life settings. We invite all makers and researchers including individuals, project groups, non-for-profit and commercial.

Submit a 800 word summary (four A4 pages) via Easychair by June 1st!

Participants are requested to submit a 800 word summary (approx. 4 A4 pages) including images and/or links to samples of own hardware/software design work (e.g. mock-ups, prototypes). Design samples help the reviewers to understand the solution and the design approach. Submissions may include work from past, current, or future projects and may as well just present creative ideas independent of any project scheme or research program.
