Location Enabled Body Worn Technologies In The Education Sector


This paper explores the perceived and actual implications of location-enabled technologies in an education & training context drawing upon case studies, project examples and client testimonials including the Australian Federal Police, Northern Territory Fire Police & Emergency Services as well as projects funded in 2011 under the Australian Flexible Learning Framework (AFLF). A focus on the use of location enabled point-of-view (POV) body worn camera (BWC) technologies will be explored in this paper, referencing cross-sectoral and inter-disciplinary thoughts as to the perceived benefits of the technology and the socio-ethical implications of these pervasive technologies.
