What you will learn
- People don’t simply use tools and technology; they are affected by them, and the interactions between our senses, our tools, our technologies and ourselves are complex.
- A good tool we have learned to use supports us by becoming an extension of our body, enabling flow and engagement as we reach our goals. If a tool does not support us well it can impede our learning and flow, and make it harder to reach our goals.
- We have eight senses and we use them all. Our testing can help to improve people’s experiences of tools if we understand our eight senses, and how these are affected by the virtual and real worlds
- 45 Minutes
- Includes 15mins Q&A
- New Technologies & Challenges
