Library Technology Specialist Roxann Riskin Beta Tests Google Glasses. ‌We've all heard about Google Glasses – the wearable computer with an optical head-mounted display – but it's still in beta-testing mode, and only several thousand people around the world have them. But there's a good chance ...

World Book Day 2015 is Very Special to me this year, and my project partner +rick sare  because we have authored and photographed the very First Children's Glass Alphabet Book in print and eBook format too with entirely non-edited Google Glass  photographs..

Creating a truly unique  book like this, was extremely important to us as we wanted to demonstrate a collaborative  book writing project using the Google Glass wearable device. Sending and sharing photos to our Google Online storage drive was very simple and saved so much time allowing for immediate accessibility to Rick's  Glass photographs, all because of GLASS.  

We feel as Glass Explorers, to have proven this successful as an all born digital GLASS book to be seen as a visible testament to collaborative writing while using an eye glass wearable device.

As a professional technologist/educator, I have discovered  at least two important things, first that working in many different time zones as Rick was in many times, is not a barrier to collaboration , just the opposite. The collaborative aspect of this book project was especially instant communication, when using the text chat sessions of the Google Plus Community to daily review our work flow and secondly, this also helped to generate the  new idea for the next book, Curious Curtis and The Important Things.
There are so many more things too:)

These are the books we have authored.
The Glass Alphabet ,  Curious Curtis and The Important Things, and Explorer Rick, and Curious Curtis Exploring Healthy Things.
On Amazon, iBooks through iTunes and our publisher Blurb.com

We also have donated books to libraries too.  We would like to thank everyone who had helped us and those awesome people who have purchased our books too.  We could not have done this without your support and encouragement. :)

Explorer Rick is going to ask Curtis what he wants to use for exploring but he needs your help.  +rick sare  wants to know what do you think Curtis needs for more exploring on the USA roads?
