I am reading more and more about wearable technology.
In a sense it has been with us for a long time especially in terms of listening to music, but in another sense it is becoming more pervasive with really interesting developments in terms of health and fitness.
It set me thinking about secondary-schools and about Acceptable Usage Policies when the first teacher or student arrives in wearing Google Glass. What to do?
Why not embrace it!
Vala Afshar recently published 14 Google Glass Innovative Use Cases in Education.
Afshar was talking of the University, but some of his uses are applicable in the Secondary-school. I will highlight three them. I recommend you have a quick look at his Slideshare below.
- Incorporate Glass into Athletics
- Provide a simulated experience to students of an intense event
- Create a club to design apps for Glass
Now, I would just love to bring a Google Glass or Glasses into the classroom, explore them with the students and brainstorm the possibilities they see! Please Google….
