25 Feb Digital Leaders Testing ‘Wearables’ with Technology Will Save us

A great deal of fun and excitement was had in the playground yesterday when Technology Will Save Us brought in their latest kit for the digital leaders to test.  ‘Wearable technology’ or ‘Wearables’ refers to  electronic technologies or computers that are incorporated into items of clothing and accessories which can comfortably be worn on the body for example in watches or stitched into clothing.  In this case the children were trying out Accelerometers and Magnetometers.  They were challenged to work out what the different lights on the devices meant and what triggered them.  Take a look at our photos and some video clips of the children explaining what these devices do.
