Hello everyone, let me begin with a brief introduction. My name is Tyler Scowcroft and I am a Master of Fine Arts student (fiction) at the University of Washington. I became interested in the pedagogical applications of technology through teaching freshman composition. Particularly, I’m intrigued by how technology can influence student-instructor interaction outside the classroom (eg multimedia instructor feedback on assignments) and also how technology can shape the classroom experience itself. In regards to the latter, much of the tech news in recent months has involved forms of wearable technology, such as Google Glass or Samsung’s new smart-watch, the Galaxy Gear. While these types of products are not yet widely available or cost-effective enough to appeal to students en mass, if current trends continue this technology could very well become as ubiquitous in the near future as smart-phones are today. I would love to hear some thoughts on how some of you see wearable technology, especially immersive headsets like Google Glass, impacting the classroom experience. Would you be inclined to ban its use altogether or utilize it (especially if it is cost-effective) to produce an augmented reality in the classroom? Thanks!
