Experiential Learning

Wearable devices, such as virtual reality device Oculus Rift, allow students to experience learning in a whole new way. Craig said that education is moving into a "new era" of experiential learning, where students can live a lesson instead of just reading about it. For example, the Historypin project is a collaborative effort to visualize the past in the present through applications.

"You're going to be able to do that through wearable devices, especially as the battery life gets better," Craig said.
