Check out this awesome group of Explorers!  I had the privilege of visiting Google HQ last week to meet up with a small group of other Glass Explorers and a variety of people from the Glass Team - including a discussion with Sergey Brin!  While it was amazing to talk to him, the takeaway I’m most excited about are the connections I made with the group of people I had an opportunity to meet on the trip.  After spending time with Noble...

Likewise, +Margaret Powers

I'm trying to get an educator to look more into Glass. If he decides to go along I'd love to point him in your direction!

Glass projects  - 
 
I've been using Glass with Pre-K to 2nd grade students since the start of school and sharing about the project on http://365daysofglass.com  

This is one of my favorite posts so far because it touches on how the students have really begun to see Glass as one more tool accessible to them for documentation and sharing, so much so that they think everyone is doing that too!

Tell us Margaret whether you can forsee a day when pre-schoolers will be fitted out with #glass  that is specifically engineered and marketed for that demographic.

An unforgettable experience thanks to +Becca Samson, the +Google Glass Team, and these amazing Explorers!  
 
Last week we invited nine Explorers to Google HQ, one of the coolest things about the Explorer Program is the unique groups and communities that have sprung up around Glass. This group represents a variety of Explorer communities, from planning events at Disney World to hosting Hangouts about uses for Glass in the medical field.

Together, we talked about ways for the Glass Team to stay in touch more broadly across the Explorers Community and help Explorers connect with each other. Based on these conversations, we’re looking forward to developing the relationship between Glass and community leaders like these!

+Margaret Powers Wouldn't have been the same without you; thank you so much for all of your feedback and support!
 
We've also been using Glass for a number of collaborative exchanges, both locally and globally.

We have partners in Singapore, Brazil, Ethiopia, and the U.S. and it's been great to see the students use Glass to share their learning experiences and connect with other classes!

Here's my recent interview discussing Google Glass in the classroom with +Alexander Hayes 

I'd love to connect with more educators in #Australia  about ways Glass might be used as a tool for documentation and classroom reflection.

Story
Tagline
Passionate educator and technology entrepreneur working as a Technology & Education Consultant and Tech Coordinator. I specialize in social media, early childhood & global education.
Introduction
I'm a Technology Coordinator working with students and teachers in Pre-K through 2nd Grade and a Technology and Education Consultant specializing in social media, early childhood, and global education. I have a master’s in International Training and Education from American University and a B.A. in Psychology from Bryn Mawr College.

As a Tech Coordinator, I help teachers and students in PreK-2nd grade integrate technology into the classroom and explore ways to use technology as a tool for global collaboration, communication, and creation. I'm is currently exploring ways to use Google Glass as a tool for documentation and developing a Maker Club for my young students.

As a consultant, I have extensive experience managing social media networks on various platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Pinterest, and designing and maintaining websites through WordPress. I have supported webinars on early childhood education and social media, designed professional development trainings, blogged about education, co-moderated Twitter chats (#ecetechchat & #globalclassroom) and conducted research and compiled data on technology services and early childhood education. I have also worked internationally with large, multi-agency organizations to create virtual communities of practice and use Web 2.0 tools for collaboration and dialogue.

My hope is to connect educators around the globe using technology so that they can more easily share resources and pedagogical practices. I love exploring and using technology and enjoy teaching others about ways they can use technology to network through social media and market their programs and organizations online.
