What do teacher's think about wearable technology in schools?

A new research study published in the Frontiers Journal explores teacher's attitudes to wearable technology in schools.

The study, performed by a team of experts from Bath, Bristol, Loughborough and Bradford Universities set out to gain a better understanding of in-school attitudes to wearables and the idea of tracking physical activity. The team chose to use Moki as the wearable solution for the project so naturally we 're thrilled to see how the technology is being used to provide this kind of invaluable new insight.
