How Can Google Glass Be Used In Education?


http://www.edudemic.com/google-glass-be-used-in-education/

It may not be quite ‘mainstream’ yet, but Google Glass is still growing, both in number of users and overall popularity. The idea of having a heads up display in front of you while you move through your day brings a lot of different options – but how can we put that to use in a classroom? We’ve written a few different things on Google Glass (and other wearable technology) in the classroom, but since Google Glass is ‘officially’ buyable (it was only available to developers for awhile), we thought some additional ideas might be fun and useful. The handy infographic below offers a look at the vast capabilities of the product along with some classroom ideas that fit with those features.

Using Google Glass in The Classroom

Glass is currently available to “Explorers” (sort of like a beta testing group) for $1500, but anyone can become an explorer and buy the product (as of this writing)
The market for Glass is estimated to be about $10.5 billion yearly
It can be implemented for many different uses in education, such as:
Orientations
Supplemental material for lectures
Close ups of lab work
Safe viewing at a distance
Medical training
Documentation of field trips
Virtual field trips
Student monitoring
How-to films
Record practice videos
Student presentations and performances
Learning while participating
Remote group work
Remote tutoring
Attendance
Teachers capture notes
Record lectures/classes
Performance evaluations

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for www.3aaa.co.uk where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
