Abstract

In this paper we will discuss how a social studies teacher used Pivothead Wearable Imaging technology to document her experiences while participating in a trip to Antarctica funded by the Grosvenor Teacher Fellow Program, which is sponsored by National Geographic Lindblad Expeditions. In this paper, we describe the nature of her trip to Antarctica, how she incorporated wearable technologies into the trip, and how she used the digital technologies to enhance her instruction. We will conclude by offering key learnings about how this teachers’ implementation of digital technologies can serve as a model for other educators to follow.
