The new year is off to an exciting start with confirmation that I’ll be presenting a paper about the Internet of Things (IoT) and education access at the CSUN 2018 Assistive Technology conference in San Diego, USA this March.
The presentation, titled ‘Internet of Things Education: Implications for Students with Disabilities’ is based on research I was involved in during 2017 at Curtin University. The presentation will focus on findings of a report that investigated the impact of IoT on students with disabilities in tertiary education, the evolving benefits and issues of IoT and potential future projects for consideration in this emerging space. The report was structured to support W3C processes as part of the Web of Things work of which I am a contributor through the Research Questions Task Force.
My presentation session will be held on Friday 23 March at 2:20pm. If you are planning to go to the CSUN conference this year, please get in touch as it’d be great to see you there.
Many thanks to my colleagues at Curtin and W3C for their support during the project which has led to this opportunity.
