At the 2014 Learning Technologies Conference and Exposition, I led a discussion titled Google Glass: The Experience, The Reaction, and the Possibilities. Here’s a description of the session:
The internet and smart mobile devices have fundamentally changed how we look at learning and performance programmes. And now another technological advance is coming; one that will once again change some of our definitions and how we address performance issues: wearable technology. This technology will come in various forms, but the one that is blazing the path is Google Glass.
David Kelly is one of the Glass Explorers (individuals exploring Glass before its public release) and has been investigating the different ways that Glass can be used for learning and performance improvement. Join David for a journey of discovery, and explore how the next wave of technological advances will impact the learning and performance field.
In this session we’ll explore:
- What is Google Glass?
- What is the Glass experience like for the user?
- How do people react to Glass?
- What doors does Glass open for learning and performance?
- How are people already using Glass for learning today?
This blog post is being set up a follow-up resource for those that attended the session. It may also serve as a resource for anyone that wants to learn more about curation and learning.
