2013 International Consumer Electronics Show

Much of the time those of us in the academic world of educational technology focus our attention on best pedagogical practices of mainstream technology. Some live close to the world of emerging technology, but I do wonder if we pay enough attention to events like the annual CES gathering, where vendors demonstrate some of their newest and coolest gadgets.

    Hello,

    This is really interesting take on the concept. I never thought of it that way. In the today’s academic world, each and every place electronics can be said as part and partial very everyone. Through the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show, many of the people, specially students can be benefit from this show.
