Give your kids a head start in this connected world
Well, maybe not, but it can make it a whole lot better in places. We’ve already looked at how online tutors can help teach students from a distance, harness technology, and look at subjects schools might not offer. The latest of Google’s ‘Explorer’ ads show how Glass can take this further: the enormously charming online Physics teacher Andrew Vanden Heuvel uses his Glass on a trip to CERN, which lets him transmit live video of the infamous Large Hadron Collider to his pupils back in the US – whilst he cycles alongside it.
In this way, Glass is being kinda revolutionary: it’s letting kids take field trips they’d otherwise never experience, takes learning out of the classroom, and looks pretty cool doing it.
