Abstract

The Google Glass Explorer Program put this unique wearable technology into the hands of educators. As the device made its way into the classroom, pedagogical opportunities were discovered at the same time that potential pitfalls were exposed. While the medical field has championed Glass's value to surgeons and medical students alike, the K-20 educational arena has been mute by comparison. This paper reports on the experiences of educators using Glass in a pilot study in secondary and higher education, and explains how a planned follow-up study, as well as the work of other researchers, could build on that pilot. It also makes recommendations for collaborative studies based on Google’s reluctance to support educational research.
