Our latest book on Wearable Enhanced Learning is published with Springer. The book appears as e-book first, and will be followed in December by the print version. The book is edited by PAL’s Dr Fridolin Wild together with colleagues from Berlin and Aachen, Dr Ralf Klamma (RWTH Aachen) and Prof Dr Ilona Buchem (Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin). Wearable technologies have already begun to remodel the way we interact with personal computing in general, and, within this book, we take stock of how body-worn, sensor-equipped devices are affecting the world of educational technologies. The volume “Perspectives on Wearable Enhanced Learning” takes a multidisciplinary view on wearable enhanced learning and provide a comprehensive overview of current trends, research, and practice in diverse learning contexts including school and work-based learning, higher education, professional development, vocational training, health and healthy aging programs, smart and open learning, and work. Presented in 21 chapters, the book provides a comprehensive introduction to the evolution and ecology of Wearable Enhanced Learning by the editors to then map out the state of affairs along five groups of chapters: the topography, technological frameworks, pedagogical frameworks, design of user experience, research & data. The authors of the chapters come from Estonia, France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Poland, the UK, and the US.
