Although not yet released in the UK, educators in the USA are already starting to experiment with the features of this technology, with examples of captures from Google Glass shared by Jonathan Schmid, the Director of Technology and Innovation at @MeadowbrookMA school in Massachusetts.

Could this be the future of teacher observation – recorded from a pupil perspective? Click on the images below to view original tweets from Jonathan Schmid.
