I believe there is potential in these technologies to support teaching and learning. Some publications I made in this area are:
Ambient Intelligence: Opportunities and Consequences of its Use in Smart Classrooms. Juan Carlos Augusto. Innovation in Teaching and Learning in Information and Computer Sciences (Italics), 8(2):53-63, Taylor and Francis, 2009.
Scoping the Potential for Anytime-Anywhere Support Through Virtual Mentors. J.C. Augusto, V. McNair, P. McCullagh, and A. McRoberts. Innovation in Teaching and Learning in Information and Computer Sciences (Italics),9:2, 1-12, Taylor and Francis, Nov 2010,
I also founded and help to run a workshop: WOFFIE, to stimulate progress in this area. This event merged with other event to form SOFIEE.
