My Plan with Google Glass
When I was given the opportunity to use Google’s newest gadget, Glass, I couldn’t believe my luck. I have always been a tech enthusiast and enjoyed learning.
While at Penn State University, I completed a minor in music technology. My final project for the minor resulted in a semester filled with tireless work creating a music technology course for a high school on a budget. The creative freedom to make a project-based curriculum excited me to search for new and fun ways to teach basic concepts.
The same technology-driven creativity has followed me at Mainland Regional High School where I teach freshmen basic knowledge of all facets of technology including topics like internet safety, Google Docs, iPads, internet-based presentation tools, and movie making. I am truly fortunate to have a supportive administration and technology department in my current district.
Right as I purchased my Google Glass device, I instantly thought I had to share my journey as a Glass Explorer (names for the beta testers). I wanted to share ideas and document the possibilities of the Glass device. I find myself brainstorming (just like I did for the seminar class and music tech curriculum) for brilliant uses of Google Glass for public education - specifically high school music.
I will use this website to compile my experience teaching with Google Glass, and more importantly, the impact Google Glass has on my students. Click HERE to view the letter I created to send to my students and their parents informing them of the new product in our school.
