Panel - The Role of Technology in the Design School Curriculum

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

From wearables, to the Internet of Things, to smart cities - technology is an essential and integrated aspect of our lives. It can measure, process and respond to anything at any time, in any place. The challenge is how do we turn this amazing technology into something useful. The good news is that accessible and customizable open-source products (such as Arduino) make it is possible for the non-engineer to develop the next big thing. As a result even the more traditional creative practices such as fashion design, jewelry or art are able to incorporate technology into their designs. However, there is no consistency in how to educate design school students on technology so they can use it in the design process. This panel will explore the growing need of technology education in the design school setting and what is needed going forward.  The panel will comprise design school technology leaders and faculty who are at the forefront of  technology education in the design school curriculum and they will discuss the current and future trends in this area.
