In 2015 the hottest accessory for young and old is wearable technology and e-textiles. Wearable technology refers to devices that can be worn by users, taking the form of an accessory such as jewelry, sunglasses, a backpack, or even actual items of clothing like shoes or a jacket. A benefit of wearable technology is that it can conveniently integrate tools, devices, power needs, and connectivity within a user’s everyday life and movements.
This NCompass Live focuses on “wearable tech” projects and e-textile projects for youth in your library. Dagen Valentine, Graduate Research Assistant, and Brad Barker, Science & Technology Specialist, from Nebraska 4-H will be presenting wearable/e-textiles tech youth project ideas for libraries. He’s selected a fiction and a non-fiction book for each of these age-groups, grades K-5, middle school and high school. He’ll suggest wearable tech projects that can be done with each book. Dagen will share information on where to purchase the hardware for the wearable tech projects he highlights in today’s webinar.
