Nathan, money is always the issue.  You are spot on about that.  But in terms of a "bring your own device" mindset, what kind of problems do you think might be raised by Google Glass in an educational setting that may not be raised by, say, an iPad or a cell phone?  And if there are problems that are different, will schools be proactive in setting up guidelines, or will we let the "tail wag the dog"?

Took a walk around Franklin, TN yesterday.  Nice little downtown area with great shops and restaurants.  If you've never been, look up the Battle of Franklin.  One of the most amazing stories I've heard about from the Civil War.

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed hearing about this program.  I'm sharing it out to our teachers and some of our IT people now.  I want our kids involved in something similar to this!

Lisa, I truly love this idea.  Our kids have been out of school 3 days last week because of weather related problems.  They are out again Monday for President's Day.  I'm sending this discussion guide out in an email to students today and posting it on our school's FB page.  Great questions!

Tried to get a few photos while in Cincinnati this weekend.  The weather was rather uncooperative.  Had to settle for these.
