Abstract

Wearable computing and e-textiles has a lot of potential as an educational computing topic. They allow students to exercise their creativity and imagination while learning about concepts in computing and technology. However, there are still numerous difficulties involved in deploying existing technology in an educational environment. In this paper, we present the TeeBoard, a construction platform for e-textiles and wearable computing that is designed to be robust, reliable, easy to construct and to program. It has also passed initial tests in a practical workshop for high school students.
