I feel very fortunate to be able to test and work with glass, but my first intention has always been, how can I (and others) use it for learning purposes. I follow Two Guys and Some iPads and their last blog post mentioned how some educators are using Google Glass right now.
They quoted Stacey Goodman who wrote a great piece saying "Google Glass provides the educator a means for "making learning visible" (MLV), and can assist with the "observation and documentation in deepening and extending children's and adults' learning" that the Project Zero researches from Harvard and Reggio Emilia, who developed MLV, identified as key to effective teaching. The paradox of MLV is that documenting one's process within the workflow must itself be invisible if it is to be seamless and not "get in the way" of the actual work." (Goodman Dec. 6)
The Guardian had on article talking about how some doctors are using Google Glasses. "I immediately thought Google Glass can transform how we perform surgery, " Shah said. "One immediate advantage is I can constantly keep my eyes on my patient. I don't have to constantly have to move my head up and down looking at an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) or X-Ray or a 'before and after' in my viewer." He continues, "Another advantage is I can communicate directly from the operating room with a patient's friends or family and tell them what is going on." Furthermore, Shah says he believes the device will enable surgeons to document critical moments during a procedure. For example, in surgery, both surgeons and colleagues will be able to see the exact position and size of a patient's tumor. (Editor Jan. 20)
Ellyssa Kroski had some great ideas on how Google Glass can be used in libraries. 1. Enhance library tours 2. Record author talks and events 3. Enhance Maker Spaces 4. Record hands-on video tutorials 5. Provide real time OCR (optical character recognition speech) and text-to-speech 6. Real time translations of foreign text and 7. Speak to patrons in their own language. (Kroski April 18)
Here are some video examples of how things look through Glass:
