From a teaching perspective, seeing things through the Google Glass lens can bring new opportunities for teaching and learning.

google-glass-moocsIn tomorrow’s future, students and teachers will not always need to sit in the classroom with paper and pen, but maybe as co-participants in an online MOOC, like those provided by Coursera, using wearable technology like Google Glass.

As a MOOC participant, I put on my Google Glasses, and say, “OK Glass.” At my computer I Google the words “professor,” “Dr. Chuck,” “(#IHTS),” “YouTube,” and instantly begin watching his video.

Or, I can make a call, compose an eMail, post a Tweet, or join a Google Hangout to meet up with the professor. Exploring new educational spaces like MOOC’s are, in my view, relevant teaching and learning opportunities especially while wearing Glass.

From a teaching perspective, seeing things through the Glass lens can bring new opportunities for teaching and learning. For a few examples, teachers, in a traditional/flipped/hybrid classroom, can use Glass for instant facial recognition of students, reading student’s eMail or tweets posted on a class’s Twitter feed.
