We’ve been hearing about wearable Google Glasses for some time now, usually in non-educational contexts. They seem not to have caught on with the general public because people are not keen on being recorded by strangers while they’re in public. However, elearningindustry.com believes these Google Glasses will become useful devices for a range of business educational applications, and it’s not hard to imagine how these could be used in everyday educational contexts. They cite, as new uses, the ability to develop “interactive and immersive scenarios and simulations,” for example, allowing students to be put in the real world of specific jobs or occupations, especially where these may be potentially hazardous; using this technology, teachers can also “step into the shoes of the learner…and make their own assessment regarding the course,” as well as simply “being able to see everything from the learner’s perspective.”
