A new publication from KnowledgeWorks, Leveraging Digital Depth for Responsive Learning Environments, explores the potential future impacts of using wearables, AR, and VR in the classroom and other learning environments. The report also encourages educators to develop a critical filter to sift through the hype and determine the value and use of these new technologies.

A while back, I purchased a Misfit fitness- and sleep tracker.  It looks more like jewelry and not like a wearable device. It works a lot different in that it is a very small, round device that can be worn in a variety of ways at different parts of the body. The device is super easy to set up and to sync.  The  battery change is also very easy.  I was also excited to receive regular replacement batteries via mail when I needed them. I loved my Misfit!

However, when I ordered replacement armbands in different colors, I was disappointed with the quality.  All of them ripped after a few uses.  They could not hold the device anymore and are useless now.

Also, since last week, the Fitbit quit working altogether.  I will contact the company and find out if they will make an effort to repair or replace the item.

Stay tuned; I will update this Blogpost after hearing back from the company.  Fingers crossed…
