1:2 – augmediated (rather than augmented)… the ability to see through and interact with

Alexander Hayes is an acknowledged expert on emerging technology and its impacts on society in an educational context.

Alexander’s research focuses on the impacts of wearable technologies on education, training and occupations.

He says that while these devices have many educational benefits, like enhancing mobile and distance education and enabling instruction for dangerous tasks in the workplace, he is worried that lawmakers are failing to keep up with the rapid uptake of these devices, which is already exploding in the extreme sports, military and medical sectors.
