Today's Glass Use Log. And another News Team came today to do what will likely be the most extensive story yet. Interesting interviews, and good evidence from students that Glass has become part of our classroom fabric (i.e. they don't really notice it).

I'm still quite amazed at how few people ask me about #Glass. I wear it on the bus everyday and while walking to work or around campus. And I'm quite certain that many folks notice it, but then avoid engaging with me about it. Not to trivialize the concept, but it feels a bit like being "the other." Sometimes I feel like saying "hey- do you see this thing? Curious about it? I am."

I wonder if they would decide to ask about it if they knew that the first thing I would say is "do you want to try it out?" I always take Glass off and hand it to folks who ask, giving them the opportunity to try it out.

This is turning out to be an interesting observational study on human interaction in public spaces, beyond the educational research study we've developed.

I think anyone who decides to wear glass will immediately draw attention to themselves in certain arenas. Most people can't afford it and aren't even aware of it. Right now it's kind of a "lost" tool; younger people who are more up to date on technology can't afford it and older people who have money aren't interested. In fact, they may even fear something like Google Glass and rightfully so in some ways. It's neat that you're doing a real life observation of its practicality especially in classrooms. I think it's too pricey right now to consider using in schools but it does have its advantages, especially in special education. Thanks for blogging about it!

Another media piece on our #Glass  research in the classroom.

Is Google Glass a useful tool for a teacher to learn more about teaching? It’s a question at the heart of new in-class research underway at University of Colorado’s Denver School of Education & Human Development.

Our Teaching and Learning #ThroughGlass  research project at the University of Colorado Denver is starting to draw some interest form local media, as well as others within the university. 

Here is a link to our project one-pager, in case you're interested:

Our first media coverage for the project. They got it mostly correct.

Our local Tampa Bay Times did a similar piece on me last September. Great article and work!

Interesting piece, but no mention of using #Glass in educational settings.

And what is "lumberjacking?" I can only assume that the author means "logging" but has no real conception of that job ;]

I did not use Glass to record any video during class today, although I did wear glass during class to keep the wearing consistent throughout the course. We could not set up the back of the room video (others were not available) so I would not have had any comparative video. 

But I am confident in saying that Glass has become part of the classroom fabric and is not really noticed (and not commented on) by the students.

We are using Google Glass at Ulysses Byas Elementary School to improve instruction. Students are wearing Glass as they work through various skills in math and ELA. We are using Google Glass to improve instruction by studying how students are working through various skill sets.

View the video to see how it can be used to reteach math skills and correct mistakes made by the student and improve academic vocabulary.

Sharing our work on the Teaching and Learning #ThroughGlass research project
Introduction
In this space, we'll share our experiences, data, interpretations, and maybe even some findings ( ;] ) resulting from our _Teaching and Learning #ThroughGlass_ research at the University of Colorado Denver. 

Note that we're researchers. That means we are skeptics, not fanboys. We're setting out to disprove our hypotheses about the affordances of Glass in the classroom context. It's up to the research and data to convince us otherwise. 

Also note that this is a small, unfunded research project, and a "sideline" project for the PI. Of course there are many more things we would like to do in this project, but our resources are limited. 

Please direct any questions or inquiries about the project to the PI, Dr. Robert (Bud) Talbot (https://plus.google.com/+BudTalbot)
