Just last week I was selected to join the Google Glass Explorer Program and the glasses already arrived yesterday. I will share my experiences and experiments with this technology on my new blog Glass@VCU. My project is generously supported by VCU’s Center for Teaching Excellence and the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture.
My plan is to introduce Google Glass in my social media classes for multimedia production as well as for research projects. I am also planning to share the technology with my colleagues in our Center for Media+Health and conduct projects in our research lab. I will encourage colleagues who experiment with Google Glass to share their experiences on this blog as well. I will start my classroom use of Google Glass in my Social Media Research class in mid-January and hope to develop a research project with my graduate students.
