Background: Technology is more and more ‘wearable’, meaning that individuals can collect data from devices they wear. Fitbits are a prime example, but also GPS tracking in elite teams sports is very common.
Objective: In this 45 minute session, we will explore some of these devices, and see how they work, where they are used and what information they provide.
Activities: In small groups/individually, attendees will select a piece of equipment and search the internet for information about it.
Output: The gathered information will result in an infographic that summarizes the pieces of equipment.
Benefits: By sharing the attendees’ findings at the end of the session, there will be an overview and discussion of different pieces of wearable technology.
