It’s also a year where education is growing simultaneously more personalized and also driven by big data analytics. The power combination is changing how students learn and now that learning is measured.

Living in Digital Times will host an exclusive press conference and breakfast at the 2015 International CES®. Robin Raskin, founder and president of Living in Digital Times, will present a market overview of the latest trends in family, wearable and education technology, while previewing some of the hottest new products that will be announced during CES.

“This is the year when Bluetooth, mobile, internet and sensors are coming together to make everything digital, helping families live their connected lives as a unit,” said Robin Raskin, founder and president of Living in Digital Times. “It’s also a year where education is growing simultaneously more personalized and also driven by big data analytics. The power combination is changing how students learn and now that learning is measured.”

This year’s family will be taking advantage of the Internet of Things, wearable technology and smart home automation products to keep their lives in order. Kids, the digital natives, are becoming more active participants in technology, and less passive consumers as evidenced by new robotics, interactive viewing, kid’s wearables and other toys. As children become students, they’ll enter a more connected classroom as lessons are digitized and more personalized to each student’s needs.

Some of the exciting new products being showcased at the press breakfast include:
