Don Wettrick @donwettrick teaches an Innovations Class at Franklin Community School in Indiana where his students use innovative technologies, record a TV show and learn and share. His students are some of the first to use Google Glass in the classroom.
There are so many concerns and questions about this new wearable technology that literally puts a camera on your face along with smartphone technology projected on the glass of the glasses. Don and I had a discussion about what Google Glass means for the classroom.
Don’s episode went so well, that I also helped Don Kick off his new show on BAM Radio, InnovatEd which has been featured as a “New and Noteworthy” show on iTunes in the K12 section. I hope you’ll listen to his thoughts on Google Glass in the classroom (based in reality, I might add), and also subscribe to his new show.
The more practicing classroom teachers who share about what is happening in the classroom, the better. It is time for teachers to realize that we are the media and we can share best practices better than those who sit in an office and dream them up for us — best practices that may or may not work.
Google Glass is around the corner, shape your thinking and the policies of your school now to handle this innovation with Google Glass in the Classroom: Possibilities and Challenges Ahead.
