April 17, 2014 - Dr. Kevin Trowbridge, a Google Glass Explorer and Assistant Professor of Public Relations at Belmont University, shared relevant insights about Google Glass and its potential impact on Education last Thursday night as a part of the Rosebrough Center's Event Series. Trowbridge's presentation, Learning #Through Glass: An Exploration of Google Glass for Education, was well received by scores of attendees. The session was held on Union University's main campus in Jackson, TN.
Trowbridge emphasized that Google Glass allows educators to literally see and explore what it means to be student, as the technology provides an opportunity for such perspective to be shared with others. Trowbridge argues that Google Glass can offer such a perspective more completely than traditional methods of photography and video.
Union University students, alumni, faculty, and local community members attended the session. For many, this was the first time to see and interact with Google Glass, as it has largely been a technology obtained by invitation only.
The Rosebrough Center for Educational Practice at Union University aims to provide opportunities for engagement and discussion on topics related to education. Trowbridge's presentation about Google Glass offered such an occasion, especially in terms of encouraging attendees a chance to consider how such an emerging technology could potentially impact traditional methods of Education.

For those who were unable to attend the session, a video of the Event Series on Google Glass will be posted to the website of the Center in the near future.
