TWG 1: Technology developments: how human computer interactions change with technological innovation
Looking backwards and moving forwards to investigate how educational contexts and human computer interactions change as technology developments occur. For instance, today, screens of different sizes in and outside classrooms may be used by teachers and learners for interacting with multimedia content in a greater variety of contexts. Smart learning environments are being designed which can change the way knowledge is represented and the consequent ways in which one can learn. Technology developments include wearables that immerse the learner in a simulated physical world facilitating tactile interactions or immersive environments (e.g. 3D) which may engage learners in a surround experience and such innovation may point to future educational developments.
