Last month, Computing students from GSM London had the privilege of attending the “Emerging Digital Technologies for the Smart City” event. Sponsored by University of Greenwich, Royal Greenwich Borough and Google, students were given the opportunity to test out new smart services and technologies in the smart city of Greenwich. They attended various talks on Technology Based Learning which covered the latest research relating to Hybrid, Virtual, and Augmented Reality, Technology Enhanced Learning, Driverless Cars and 3D printing. Intriguing, right?
It was a great and stimulating experience for our students to gain insight not only through speaking to industry professionals, but also also getting involved in the testing of new smart services. We hope to provide more opportunities and similar events before the end of their studies.
