The Rosebrough Center Event Series is sponsored by the Thomas R. Rosebrough Center for Educational Practice and provides an avenue for engagement and discussion on relevant educational topics. Please register below for our upcoming event.
Consider how emerging technologies could potentially change the way we see teaching and learning. While the fundamentals of education remain steadfast, innovative educators are constantly monitoring the dynamic communication landscape for tools that may enhance their educational practice. This presentation will showcase one of Google’s developing technologies—Google Glass. After an introduction to Glass, we’ll look at how Glass Explorers are using it for educational practice. We’ll be challenged to consider the pedagogical implications of Glass in the learning space. Some attendees will even have the opportunity to experiment with Glass during the session.
