WHAT!2021 — Wearables, Humans, and Things – Addressing Problems in Education.

Call for Participation

The workshop will focus on application of WHATs in the domain of education. We will discuss how the utilization of wearable devices as well as devices incorporated into the Internet of Things can foster advances in digitally supported teaching and learning mechanisms, which are vital in distance learning applications.

Expected Outcomes

Participants of the workshop will present their ideas in short workshop talks. After the presentations we plan to hav a specific block where all workshop participants openly discuss the position papers and talks. Thus we will have a view on multiple aspects of WHATs in several blocks consisting of papers / talks and subsequent discussion sessions. First discussions will even start previous to the workshop in the Facebook page: Wearables, Humans And Things - WHAT (see Facebook link in the header of this website).

After the Workshop, we will continue the discussions in the Facebook page and will encourage the participants to send extended and revised position papers to the organiz-ers for publishing e.g. in a Springer LNCS book or in a special issue of a suitable jour-nal/magazine.
