S. Sezgin

Mehmet Akif Ersoy University (TURKEY)
Transformative potential and the power of technology is changing the ways of learning processes. New learning trends show that learning should be more connected, individualized, gamified, adaptable and easy to regulate. It is the reason that humans are playful, inventor and perform in reference to their individual differences. In today’s world, technological devices, humans and even humanoid artificial intelligences are connected with each other and the physical environment by the help of sensors and wireless networks. In this new internet of things era, there is a strong cyclical linkage between wearable devices, learning analytics, artificial intelligence and adaptivity.

This study intends to review and find the current and future developments about personal digital assistants along with wearable technologies in educational contexts. For this purpose, a qualitative review of the literature was performed. Related resources and articles about personal digital assistants and wearables were examined according to possible educational use and applications. Foresights of the studies, findings and conclusion sections of the documents were analyzed and synthesized after describing the current personal digital assistants and wearables in use. Educational potentials of the technologies mentioned before were specified and discussed for the further research about educational technologies.
