  • What Did Students Have to Say?

  • The Good:

    I liked having glass in the classroom to relate to what we were learning about.

    I enjoyed the discussions about Glass and the topics that were brought up during the

    discussions like privacy, social decency, and

    the implications of wearable technology.

    Google glass made the class more interesting.

  • The Meh:

    It was not particularly academically valuable, but the novelty of it was still fun.

    Glass is a neat tool to use, but I'm not sure the class benefited from it. It wasn't

    hurt by any means either, but I don't think

    it added to the learning.

  • The Bad

    Sharing wasn't fun. It would have been cool if every group had a pair.

    In class we only used two features of Glass for our assignments and that was

    taking pictures or videos.

    I do not think glass is innovative or efficient enough to use to be used

    effectively in a classroom.
